KPN mobile data traffic doubles in 2015

Thursday 31 December 2015 | 10:14 CET | News
Mobile data use on KPN's network doubled in 2015, the Dutch operator announced. In the third quarter, customers on the KPN brand used an average 1.3 GB per month, compared to 620 MB in the same period of 2014. KPN said it expects data usage to continue to grow and it will invest further in the network to meet the demand. In 2015, the operator upgraded the network in several high-demand areas to 4G+. The use of carrier aggregation provides increased capacity and speed. Already around 1,500 antennas support LTE Advanced, and more will be added in the new year.
