Ericsson has been selected by Telenet as their 5G radio access network (RAN) provider, bringing wide-reaching benefits of 5G to Belgium. As part of their expanded partnership, Telenet will use Ericsson’ 5G radio access network (RAN) technologies for faster, reliable and more energy-efficient connectivity.

This latest contract includes the full modernization of Telenet’s existing RAN (2G/3G/4G) with Ericsson Radio System products and solutions and the deployment of 5G technology nationwide.

Ericsson 5G RAN technology includes its Massive MIMO portfolio that offers a wide range of antenna-integrated radios for maximum 5G experience and capacity, both in urban and rural settings.

Ericsson now has 132 commercial 5G agreements and contracts with unique operators, of which 76 are publicly announced 5G deals, including 79 live 5G networks on four continents.

According to a 2021 Analysys Mason report exploring the costs and benefits of 5G geographical coverage in Europe, there is potential EUR 250 billion benefit for European GDP through a full rollout of 5G.
