The 5G speed race in Luxembourg enters a new phase as Post announced it will launch 5G on 16 October for everyone.

According to Paperjam, the telecoms operator will launch 5G on 16 October “for all residential and business mobile subscriptions without any price increase”, alongside a new “5G Power” range to reach speeds of up to 1Gbit/s, up to 100GB of data and a subscription with Post's new partner, the world leader in French cloud gaming Blacknut (400 games in the catalogue).

Remember that just because it will be possible to access 5G speeds does not mean that the user will actually have access to it. We will probably have to see if smartphones and other devices and a person’s location allow it.

A debate was conducted in parliament, in the presence of prime minister Xavier Bettel (DP), about 5G deployment in Luxembourg, following a petition that collected more than 7,000 signatures. The petition comes, however, a little late to really make a difference.
