Slovak MNOs to swap fragmented 1800MHz spectrum

1 Feb 2022

Slovakia’s four mobile network operators (MNOs) have agreed a plan to swap frequencies in the 1800MHz band to give them contiguous packages of spectrum which will help to improve 2G, 4G and 5G network efficiency. Zive.sk reports that the deal was negotiated by the operators themselves, with the regulator acting only as a moderator. The MNOs will each get 2×20MHz of spectrum in three parts of the country and 2×15MHz in one agreed area. Formal refarming begins on 14 February and will be completed around two months later, the report says.
