Telia and Telenor are upgrading their shared mobile network in Denmark and will now launch the 5G network.
Telia and Telenor, who operate shared mobile infrastructure in Denmark, today announces it will start rolling out 5G in Denmark later this month. Ahead of the 5G launch, the companies have upgraded the network and conducted several successful 5G pilot tests.
The first cities to get 5G are Copenhagen and Aalborg, where existing 5G test sites will be made public. A 5G upgrade and commercial launch of more existing sites will follow.
Telia and Telenor will continue with the rollout in two other major Danish cities, Aarhus and Odense.
With the implementation of 5G, Telia and Telenor will ensure that the companies’ joint mobile network is cutting edge, says Thomas Kjærsgaard, Head of Telia in Denmark:
“We want to roll out a nationwide 5G network based on customer and market demand. A smart rollout, where our customers will get the most out of both the new 5G network and leverage existing, strong and nationwide 4G network. Our priority is to ensure that we can offer the best network coverage and at the same time enable innovative digital solutions that utilize the technologies and capacity of our network,” he says.
The network modernization and 5G rollout will continue gradually over the next years as the 5G frequencies becomes commercially available.
5G is the next generation mobile network which will enable new possibilities for more people, as well as create completely new areas of use for businesses, organizations and society. The new 5G network will enable higher capacity and data speed, fast connectivity and response time, and low latency.
5G’s potential is currently limited for consumers as the choice of 5G-capable phones and 5G connectivity is scarce.
