Montenegro eyeing 5G rollout in 2022

Montenegro is likely to see 5G launches by the end of 2022, with the regulator looking to outline a roadmap this year.

Local news outlet Vijesti reports that the Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services (EKIP) will publish its strategy this year with an eye on holding auctions in the second half of 2021.

EKIP executive director Darko Grgurovic confirmed that the government is planning to auction frequencies in the 700MHz, 3.5GHZ and 26GHz bands. He noted that operators have expressed interest in conducting 5G trials this year.

The regulator hopes that operator trials will demonstrate potential applications of the technology for both consumers and businesses.
