5G is a wireless network technology that will be faster and able to handle more connected devices than the existing 4G LTE network
After Post announced the rollout of 5G to Luxembourg customers, telecoms providers Tango and Telindus expect to follow a week later.
Communicating on Thursday, Tango said 5G would start being available to mobile customers in the capital from 23 October, a launch that coincides with the release of the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
5G technology should offer existing customers download speeds of up to 1Gbit/s. Tango said access is included in its mobile contracts. Tango 5G is already certified on the two new iPhone models, the firm said, adding that certifications are underway for a selection of other devices.
The 5G network will be deployed to customers in other geographic areas in the south of the country at the start of 2021, with further areas to follow later in the year.
Meanwhile, Telindus announced on Friday that it will launch 5G for its business customers on 23 October.
Post won the 5G race in Luxembourg, launching its services on 16 October for all residential and business mobile subscribers, reportedly without any price increase.
5G technology continues to attract critics in Luxembourg where a petition stopping the network rollout attracted 7,000 signatures earlier this year.
