According to the operator’s plans, in 2021 the state-of-the-art 5G network in 2600 MHz TDD technology from Plus shall cover over 11 million of Poland’s inhabitants.
“The total of over 1000 base stations supporting 5G is our small New Year’s gift to the inhabitants of Poland. Last year, 5G network was a technological novelty. In 2021, along with the dynamic development of 5G in Plus, this modern technology will become a universally available standard. Already now over 7 million people in Poland is within the coverage of Plus 5G network and may use the state-of-the-art and fastest mobile Internet access”, says Jacek Felczykowski, Member of the Management Board of Cyfrowy Polsat and Polkomtel, the operator of Plus network.

Plus 5G – new quality of the Mobile Internet
The previous year clearly shown the importance of stable and fast Internet access. Growing data transfer, resulting from relocating many activities to the virtual space, has emphasized even more the importance of the development of the latest generation network for our economy and society. Plus is the only operator on the Polish market to dedicate a separate 2600 MHz band in TDD technology to 5G network, thus increasing the network capacity.
Along with the 5G network development, the currently used 2600 MHz band will ensure better coverage and higher network capacity than in the case of frequency bands within 3400-3800 MHz range and will enable us to maintain the advantage at subsequent stages of 5G network roll-out related to a possibility of combining different frequency bands.
