“This is proof, if any is needed, that the Principality, despite its constraints, its size, its topography and other factors, is innovative and high-performing.  And I believe that, thanks to these technological innovations from Monaco Telecom and its partners like Huawei, we have arrived at achieving a degree of performance and innovation which is truly indispensable,” said Prince Albert II.

“For sure, Monaco Telecom has a clientele which, I’d say, is atypical compared with elsewhere.  We have frequent travelers, we have people who use a lot of Internet, and consequently, Monaco Telecom has to bring itself to the forefront of technique and technological innovation.  Which it does, with its chosen partners like Huawei, one of the most important adversaries in telecom technology,” said Etienne Franzi.

The launch took place at the prestigious Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, an event which Monaco Telecom has been associated with for many years.

The equipment that can receive signal at such a speed however will be released no later than in a few months. But first steps are done!
