The establishment of the Polish 5G requires consultation with the European Union to explain that the innovative approach to the use of radio frequencies does not violate competition – said Exatel’s head Nikodem Bończa Tomaszewski.
Exatel together with the Polish Development Fund and four operators Orange Polska, T-Mobile Polska, Polkomtel and Play are working on a business model of a joint infrastructure for the 700 MHz band, i.e. wholesale model, in which the state holds a majority shareholding and makes the entire 700 MHz frequency available, and operators – passive infrastructure and financial contributions. – We set a very ambitious goal that our proposals will be ready this year. However, in real terms, it seems to me that we will present the conclusions at the earliest in the first quarter of 2020. The challenge is that our model is innovative and we need to refine it in every detail and subject it to careful verification – said Bończa Tomaszewski.
