Mobistar opens 4G network to customers

Tuesday 26 November 2013 | 10:58 CET | News
Mobistar has opened its LTE network for customers to start testing in 30 towns and cities. Customers with a Dolphin or Panther plan including data or an Internet Everywhere subscription can access the 4G service initially at no extra costs. In early 2014, the Belgian operator plans to add another 40 towns to the network and launch its commercial LTE offers. The company aims to match its 2G coverage with LTE by 2015. Mobistar is the last of the three operators in Belgium to launch 4G.
