Telenet, ZTE outline upgrade progress at MWC

Tuesday 28 February 2017 | 10:55 CET | News
Belgian operator Telenet is announcing at Mobile World Congress some of the early results of its network upgrade with ZTE. Telenet agreed last year a multi-year deal with ZTE to upgrade the network of Base, the mobile operator acquired by Telenet in early 2016. Telenet plans to invest EUR 250 million in the project. With ZTE the company has already tested technologies offering speeds up to 1.3 Gbps, Telenet CTO Micha Berger said. The test was based on ZTE's 4.5G technology, which offers speeds four times faster than the current 4G.
