Swisscom plans 5G network launch by year-end

Thursday 22 February 2018 | 12:16 CET | News
Swisscom plans to launch a 5G network at the end of 2018, two years earlier than originally expected. Ericsson, Swisscom's network equipment supplier, will deliver the first 5G hardware and software and implement it on the Swisscom mobile network this year. The company will shortly be trialing Switzerland's first 5G mast in Ittigen, but the development of an extensive and fully efficient 5G network is dependent on a moderate amendment of regulatory parameters.
