The development of 5G networks 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 Croatian telcos leaders at the “5G&beyond” conference, organized by 5G.hr and Markoja.
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.
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.
Immediately following the auction for the 5G frequency spectrum, telecoms began to invest heavily in the development of the next-generation network, so today Croatia can boast one of the most advanced telecommunications networks in the European Union.
