The President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, signed an Act introducing amendments to the Telecommunications Act. The amendments will result in exemption from fees for frequency use in the case when conducting research, tests or experiments is related to the introduction of new technologies.
The amended provisions are an incentive to introduce and develop new technologies, including 5G networks, which will positively affect not only the development of telecommunications, but also other branches of the economy.
The Act also introduces the possibility of obtaining permission to use radio devices for research, tests and experiments also for purposes not related to the introduction of new technologies (e.g. refarming).
