BASE Company, the Belgian subsidiary of Dutch telecom operator KPN, has launched 4G services in 15 cities in Belgium.
ZTE, which supplied radio equipment to the telecom operator as part of its LTE deal, says BASE Company was the second operator to start 4G in Belgium.
The Chinese telecom equipment maker said ZTE helped to construct UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) and HSPA (High-Speed Packet Access) Dual Carrier networks in Belgium.
Jos Donvil, CEO of BASE, said that rolling out 4G as second operator in Belgium is important in order to meet the new needs of its customers.
By June 2013, ZTE had obtained 60 4G commercial contracts and 40 EPC commercial contracts. ZTE has carried out 4G trial networks with more than 140 operators. ZTE 4G customers include China Mobile, Telenor, TeliaSonera, Bharti, Hutchison, and Telstra.
