Telenor launches commercial 5G network in Bulgaria

Telecommunications company Telenor Bulgaria, part of Dutch-registered PPF Group, said on Thursday that it officially launched its 5G network in the country.

Telenor Bulgaria's 5G service is now available in more than 60 locations in the country, including the capital Sofia, the coastal cities of Burgas and Varna, the second-largest city Plovdiv and other big cities and seaside resorts, the telecommunications company said in a statement.

The company also announced that it will start to offer fixed wireless access services with 5G.

Telenor plans to rapidly expand the coverage of its network with the aim to be a leader in the 5G coverage and network quality by the middle of 2022, the company noted.

In April, Bulgaria's communications regulator awarded 20-year 5G frequency licences with national coverage to the three main telecommunication companies operating in the country - A1 Bulgaria, Bulgarian Telecommunications Company (BTC), operating under the Vivacom brand, and Telenor Bulgaria. Telenor Bulgaria was awarded a licence for a 3500-3600 MHz band for a proposed price of 4.1 million levs ($2.5 million/2.1 million euro).

Telenor Bulgaria offers digital services, mobile technologies, and entertainment solutions to over 3 million customers.
