KPN's 4G strategy to build on existing services

Wednesday 16 January 2013 | 13:02 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer, Maarten van Vliet | Background
KPN has announced the launch of 4G in the Netherlands, and at the same time, the Dutch operator is addressing its existing network. The operator wants to be ready for the future when mobile data use is even more commonplace than today. According to figures from the GSA, 145 mobile operators in 66 countries have already launched commercial LTE services. By the end of 2013, this is expected to reach 234 networks in 83 countries. KPN will join the club in February when 4G services are launched in the Amsterdam region and north of the Randstad.
