By bne IntelliNews August 16, 2021

Croatian telecom operator A1 launched its 5G offer after winning a holding of 5G-ready spectrum at an auction last week, the Developing Telecoms portal reported.

The operator will deliver services using 700MHz and 3.5GHz spectrum, and noted that the low-latency network would be capable of delivering gigabit download speeds.

The first 5G network in Croatia was launched by Hrvatski Telekom (HT) in October last year and set up 600 5G base stations. A1 is the second 5G network with 150 base stations in this range in 12 cities.

The third operator to recently receive a 5G network license, Telemach Croatia, has announced a €130mn investment plan to build its 5G network.
