Telenor Denmark has confirmed that it has activated its 5G network, which it says can now be used by around 600,000 potential customers in Copenhagen and Aalborg. The network utilises 3.5GHz spectrum, as previously awarded by the by the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) on a trial basis. The initial launch leverages former 5G test sites in the two aforementioned cities, while Aarhus and Odense are next in line for rollouts. A wider rollout is contingent on next year’s 5G spectrum auction, the cellco notes.
Would-be 5G users require 5G SIM cards, 5G-compatible handsets and a subscription to a dedicated 5G plan. 5G packages are priced at DKK200 (USD31.9) per month (40GB data allowance) and DKK250 per month (‘unlimited’ data allowance, capped at 1,000GB).
While it has yet to issue a press release confirming its own launch, Telia Denmark – which jointly operates the TT-Netvaerket network sharing venture with Telenor – has also started marketing 5G plans via its website.
