Mobistar 4G customers reach 340,000, 22% of data traffic

Monday 27 October 2014 | 10:51 CET | News
Mobistar has around 340,000 4G customers already, CEO Jean-Marc Harion announced at an event by the Ghent appmaker In The Pocket, reported by Datanews. The 4G users already account for 22 percent of total mobile data traffic on the network. Mobistar also said that it is not seeing as much of an impact from the rise of OTT apps on SMS traffic. This is because 45 percent of its customers still have 2G devices. The company has also significantly reduced the cost of SMS in recent years. Harion also commented on recent speculation of a takeover of Mobistar, saying this is not on the cards.
