Located at 2,514 metres above sea level, the base station is powered by solar panels, wind energy and a generator, A1 said on Friday.

The operator added it had achieved its target for this year, which was to secure 5G network access to 60% of Slovenia's population. The plan is to raise the figure to 98% by 2025.

A1 moreover explained that 5G currently accounts for 10% of all the mobile data transmitted, while it expect the share to already exceed 50% by the end of this year.

The Austrian-owned operator added that it presently covers 44% of all mobile internet traffic in Slovenia.
