The next generation of the 5G network, so-called 5G Advanced, is set to launch in 2025. Global technology intelligence firm ABI Research already predicts that by 2030, three quarters of 5G networks will upgrade to the new standard.
The development of the 5G network will attract enormous investments in both Croatia and worldwide, increase the total global GDP, as well as change everyday life and improve the economy, said the leading people of Croatian telecommunications companies at the “5G&beyond” conference, organized by 5G.hr and the company Markoja.
HAKOM, the Croatian Regulatory Authority for Network Industries, will organize a new auction on the allocation of spectrum frequencies for the development of 5G infrastructure at the end of this year, and at the beginning of 2023 at the latest.
The 5G network is “4G on steroids”, joked Gordan Šišul, Ph. D., full professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Zagreb, speaking on the potentials of the 5G network at the “5G&beyond” conference organized by 5G.hr and the company Markoja.
