Telenet calls for less strict regulation in Brussels for 5G

Thursday 22 March 2018 | 17:20 CET | News
Telenet is calling for less strict regulations for the 5G network in Brussels. According to the Belgian telecom operator, the rollout of 5G is being jeopardized by the stringent Brussels radiation standard, something that has already caused problems in the construction of 4G networks.Telenet said Belgian competition law is already very extensive for the telecom sector, efficiently fighting competition distortion. Even more regulation would make investments in the upgrade of mobile networks more difficult, even though this upgrade is necessary.
