Commercial Launch of 5G on 3.6 GHz

Crnogorski Telekom announced the commercial launch of the 5G Network in Podgorica on 3.6 GHz frequencies. In a statement issued on Friday, the teleco said that commissioning a base station that enables gigabit 5G speeds shows its commitment to its strategic decision to build the fastest, largest and strongest mobile network in Montenegro. In addition, the telco said it is best positioned for the next 15 years to introduce Gigabit speeds on its mobile network with the spectrum it acquired in December last year.

Users can experience the commercially available 5G service with gigabit speeds at TC Big Fashion in Podgorica, and part of the city can already feel the power and speeds of the 5G Network. The telco was the first in the country to launch a commercial 5G Network in March last year and, a month later, was also the first to achieve Gigabit speeds on 5G.

Ready for VoLTE Rollout

Crnogorski Telekom (CT) said it is ready to enable VoLTE (Voice over LTE), a new technology for an even better user experience while making calls. VoLTE is a technology that allows users to make calls over 4G and 5G networks instead of older 2G/3G networks. Using VoLTE, the quality of mobile voice services can be significantly improved.
