Only three weeks after the partnership with Huawei, Monaco Telecom unveiled its nationwide 5G mobile network. Monaco Telecom and Huawei finalized the agreement early September in Beijing, in the framework of the State visit of Prince Albert II to China.

On September 27th, A 5G-connected UAV (Unmanned aerial vehicle) flying over the world's first yachting market broadcasted live 360° High Definition footage to a virtual reality headset. The first antennas are already installed in the pilot area of Port Hercule. The network will be completed in the coming months on 100% of the territory. It will be ready to welcome the first smartphones able to support this new technology running in 2019.

The agreement was signed by Martin Péronnet, CEO of Monaco Telecom and Shi Weiliang CEO of Huawei France and Monaco. Frédéric Genta, Country Chief Digital Officer was also present to support this collaboration, aiming to give Monaco full 5G coverage. This will contribute to the rapid implementation of the Principality’s Smart City projects, it will offer incomparable performance in Internet usage and it will advance the country’s economic development. Areas as diverse as the automobile (autonomous cars), smart cities, health (3D imaging and holograms), gaming (interactive games) or communication (assisted translation) will take full advantage thanks to the 5G.
