Monaco Telecom unveiled, as a world premiere, its nationwide 5G mobile network on the occasion of the Monaco Yacht Show.

Frédéric Genta, Interministerial Delegate in charge of the digital transition, stressed that “The Principality is the first country in the world to open the 5G: the face of the Monaco of tomorrow is emerging today and we could not create a smart nation without a strong partnership with a telecom operator.

“The power of the 5G implemented via a precise grid of the territory will be an essential platform for the digital transition. This launch proves that, day after day, the Prince’s Government is creating the face of the Monaco of tomorrow.”

At the same time, a 5G-connected UAV, flying over the world’s leading yachting market, broadcast live 360​​° High Definition images to a virtual reality headset.

From a technical point of view, the 5G will be able to obtain rates multiplied by 10 and connection times divided by 10. Simultaneous processing will be 10 times higher and can support more objects connected by antenna.

Thus, 5G will support the exponential growth of Internet usage in mobility. The first smartphones capable of supporting this new technology will be available in 2019.

This development is therefore naturally part of Monaco’s evolution as a precursor in the field of connectivity, and accompanies the Principality’s digital transition, a project led by M.Genta.
