KPN expands LTE-A coverage to major cities

Friday 22 May 2015 | 09:18 CET | News
KPN has expanded its LTE-Advanced coverage to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Groningen, Eindhoven and Tilburg, the Dutch operator confirmed to local site Tweakers. The company first launched LTE-Advanced with speeds up to 225 Mbps last September in The Hague, after adding spectrum in the 1,800 MHz band to its 4G network. Vodafone Netherlands also launched LTE-A last autumn, while T-Mobile and Tele2 are still working on national coverage for their 4G networks. Over a fifth of Dutch mobile users already make use of 4G, according to research by Telecompaper in February.
