Technology: Monaco moves towards full 5G coverage

An agreement between Monaco Telecom and Huawei was signed in China recently, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, Martin Peronnet, CEO of Monaco Telecom, and Shi Weiliang, CEO of Huawei France. This 5G nation contract will allow Monaco to become the first country in the world to enjoy full 5G coverage across its entire territory. The digital transition is thus well underway in the Principality. An initial pilot zone will be operational within a few days for the Monaco Yacht Show. Full 5G coverage will then be available between June and September 2019, in line with the release of the first 5G-capable mobile phones.
