Orange Belgium awards Nokia contract to upgrade network for 5G

Friday 9 October 2020 | 08:58 CET | News
Orange Belgium has selected Nokia to upgrade its 2G/3G/4G radio network and roll out 5G. The operator's core network will remain built by Ericsson. The swap out of the existing radio network based on Huawei equipment will take several years, to 2023, the same as at Orange's network sharing partner Proximus. The two have decided to use the same suppliers for rolling out 5G.
