Just over half Dutch use 4G services

Wednesday 1 February 2017 | 11:08 CET | News
Just over half (51%) of the Dutch used 4G in January, according to the latest results from the Telecompaper Consumer Panel. That's up from 38 percent in February 2016 and just 12 percent in August 2014. Over tow-thirds (69%) of the Dutch said they had a 4G phone, up from 54 percent a year earlier. The share actually using the 4G network has risen to three-quarters, compared to only half two years ago, when LTE was still in the roll-out phase.
