KPN’s Telfort unit delays 4G launch

2 Apr 2014

The Dutch mobile reseller Telfort, which is wholly owned by KPN, has postponed the launch of 4G services due to a technical problem, local tech website reports. The Long Term Evolution (LTE) service was due to go live on 31 March but the firm is now unsure when the launch will take place. Parent company KPN announced recently that it had completed the rollout of its 4G networks across the Netherlands and now covers 95% of the population. Its other domestic mobile resale operations, Simyo and Hi, have already begun offering LTE-based services to their own subscribers.
