KPN starts 4G mobile internet roll-out in Amsterdam

Tuesday 15 January 2013

Telecoms group KPN is to introduce launch subscriptions for its next generation mobile internet network from next month, the company said on Tuesday.

The Amsterdam region will kick off the 4G roll-out, which will operate all over the country next year, KPN said.

KPN paid over €1.4bn to buy the faster 4G frequencies at the government auction at the end of last year.

KPN, Vodafone, T-Mobile and Tele-2 all won 17-year licences to operate the new services. Tele2 is a new player and will be able to roll out its own network. Cable companies Ziggo and UPC dropped out of the auction, saying the prices were too high.

KPN starts 4G mobile internet roll-out in Amsterdam. Be careful T-Mobile and Tele2 will probably not meet the requirements of G4 nation wide.

Be careful, KPN may switch to growing potato-heads. Or the Martians may come and claim all the Vodafone masts to use them as cloth lines. Or T Mobile may decide to buy Netherlands and oblige everybody to buy an iPad...

So many dangers... BE VERY CAREFUL!!!

And the simple fact is - if a company do not comply to the requirements for the license it will lose the billions it invested. So ALL companies will make SURE they comply. Try to find other things to be careful about...
