As part of Prince Albert II’s visit to China, and in his presence, Martin Peronnet, General Manager of Monaco Telecom, and Shi Weiliang, General Manager of Huawei, France, signed an agreement in Beijing on Friday, September 7, aiming to make the Principality the first country to have 5G coverage.

This signature is part of the partnership initiated in 2012 between the Monegasque operator and the Chinese giant, a world leader in fixed and mobile networks.
