April 5G launches announced for Slovakia

Slovakian cellcos 4ka and Orange Slovakia have both revealed that they expect to launch commercial 5G services by April.

The news comes hot on the heels of O2 Slovakia selecting Ericsson as its 5G partner, although the operator declined to specify a proposed launch date. Slovak Telekom gained the first mover advantage, launching 5G in eight districts of Bratislava in December 2020.

Both Orange and 4ka will spearhead their offerings in the capital, according to TeleGeography. Local outlet Zive.sk adds that both operators will use their 3.5GHz spectrum for the networks, with 4ka also using the 1800MHz spectrum that was utilized in its 5G trial.
