CETIN has already completed more than half of the work to upgrade mobile network base stations to 5G. The update was launched in mid-2021.
About 2,600 stations have been improved out of a total of 4,200. This is a multi-billion dollar event where CETIN, as part of the transition to non-standalone 5G, that is, not to full-fledged 5G, changes Huawei to Ericsson and Nokia. Components for 2G and 4G also change.
Currently, CETIN has completed the replacement of transmitters in Central Moravia, involving 814 base stations. The 5G signal should be available in the areas of Olomouc, Přerov, Prostějov, Kroměříž, Zlin, Uherske Hradiste, Vyskov, Vsetin, Hodonin, Blansko and Novy Jicin.
The company also announced that it will upgrade another thousand transmitters in Moravia by the end of the first quarter of next year.
Old technologies are largely recycled after being dismantled. You can use elements such as gold, aluminum or copper.
