Telekom Slovenije and Ericsson roll out the first 5G commercial network in Slovenia in one week by software upgrade

Slovenia’s 5G upgrade takes just one week

August 18, 2020 //By Nick Flaherty

Telekom Slovenije has launched the first commercial 5G network in Slovenia, just one week after signing the upgrade deal. 

The new 5G services were switched on through a software installation to existing Ericsson Radio System and Packet Core equipment which will enable spectrum sharing between 4G and 5G on the 2600MHz FDD spectrum – traditionally used for 4G only. Under the terms of the 5G deal, Ericsson is supplying Telekom Slovenije with RAN and Packet Core solutions.

Initial 5G services are available in major cities across Slovenia, covering an estimated 25 percent of the population. Telekom Slovenije aims to increase its 5G coverage to 33 percent of the population by the end of 2020.
