Lack of 5G spectrum hurts Poland’s 5G experience

By Robert Wyrzykowski, April 2023

Poland compares poorly with other Central and Eastern markets for 5G experience. For 5G Video Experience, 5G Download Speed, and 5G Upload Speed Poland has the lowest average score out of the eight markets. Remarkably, the 5G download and upload speeds experienced by our Polish users are much slower — average 5G download speeds are just 77.8Mbps — than in other nearby international markets. Poland’s challenge is the small amount of new spectrum suitable for 5G services that is available for Polish operators. However, Polish 5G users spend more time connected to 5G services than some of their CEE counterparts.
