Telenet contracts Ericsson, Zites to upgrade Base network

Thursday 24 November 2016 | 10:13 CET | News
Ericsson and Zites have been awarded a contract from Belgian operator Telenet to optimise part of the Base mobile network, reports Datanews. A number of sites on the network, in Limburg and East Flanders, will be upgraded by Ericsson, and Zites will provide around 1,000 new sites for the network. Telenet is upgrading the Base network after acquiring the company from KPN, ahead of plans to move its own MVNO customers from the Orange network to Base. In August Telenet announced a long-term contract with ZTE to deploy new radio equipment across the entire Base network.
