Slovenia government delays decision on 5G licences

Thursday 5 March 2020 | 15:14 CET | News
The government of Slovenia has removed from its agenda the strategy on allocation of 5G spectrum, prepared by the Regulatory Agency for Communications Networks and Services (Akos). According to news agency Tanjung, this was done at the suggestion of the Minister of Public Administration, Rudy Medved, who told Slovenian media that questions about the harmfulness of 5G technology were legitimate. The debate on the 5G spectrum award has been delayed, pending further research into the effects of 5G on humans and the environment, the report said.
