In The Netherlands, VodafoneZiggo launches 5 G coverage


On Tuesday, Dutch telecom provider VodafoneZiggo will be making 5 G services available in large parts of the Netherlands, making it the first carrier in the country to offer the technology.

VodafoneZiggo, a joint venture between Vodafone and U.S .- based cable company Liberty Global, said it would use its current frequencies to expand 5 G coverage to the entire Netherlands by July.

The Netherlands government is expected to launch an auction for new 5 G network airwave ranges by June 30, in which the three major Netherlands telecom network operating companies-KPN, VodafoneZiggo and T-Mobile-are likely to be involved.
