Proximus to activate 5G in parts of Antwerp, Ghent, Haasrode

Thursday 17 December 2020 | 09:50 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus plans to bring 5G to a number of locations in the Antwerp, Ghent and Haasrode area. The operator will use the provisional spectrum license for the 3.6-3.8 GHz band, allocated in the summer by regulator BIPT. This is the first time Proximus activates public 5G sites on the new spectrum band. The use of that band should result in a faster service. The 5G auction has yet to take place.
