BASE Company, the Belgian subsidiary of Dutch mobile operator KPN has launched 4G services in Belgium.

ZTE’s engineering team helped BASE Company to construct the high-quality 4G network.

Jos Donvil, CEO, BASE said, “Rolling out 4G as second operator in Belgium is important in order to meet the new needs of our customers. In recent years we´ve seen the number of smartphones and the data usage on these devices skyrocket. Customers use their mobile for much more than just calling and sending text messages, and that evolution is continuing. As a challenger on the mobile market, we always want to give our customers the ultimate user experience.”

I am confident that with this new 4G network ZTE can help BASE Company to build an even stronger position in the Belgian mobile market. For ZTE, this is really a milestone event as we successfully launched another 4G network with a European operator, significantly enhancing our 4G footprint in Europe.”
