Telenet launches its own 5G network

Flemish cable operator Telenet will launch its own 5G mobile network from 6 December. The first 5G zones are located around Leuven, Antwerp and the coast. Customers with a 5G smartphone and a ONE, ONEup, KLIK and KING or KONG Business subscription can be the first to get started with 5G.

Telenet is the second provider of 5G in Belgium after Proximus. Both companies work with provisional licenses because the frequencies have yet to be auctioned.

By 2025, the entire mobile network of Telenet and BASE should be expanded with 5G. Telenet works together with the Finnish Nokia and the Swedish Ericsson.

For ONE, the mobile speeds will be increased to 150 Megabit per second, the other subscriptions can achieve up to 1 Gigabit per second on 5G. The mobile speeds equal those of the fixed network.

5G is included in the existing tariff plans at no extra cost. In the spring of 2022, the subscriptions of BASE and the other rate plans of Telenet (WIGO, King & Kong and Telenet Mobile) and Telenet Business will follow.

In December, 5G coverage is still limited to a few zones around Antwerp, Leuven and the coast. In the course of 2022, this will be expanded considerably to the large Flemish cities and along the highways.
