TDC launched commercial 5G services using the 3.5GHz band.
TDC launched commercial 5G services in the 3.5GHz band in Copenhagen, Odense, Aarhus and Helsingor on 7 September 2020. The company claims that almost 3,000 base stations have been equipped with Ericsson’s 5G technology throughout Denmark, with plans to increase the footprint to 80% by end of September 2020 and by 90% by year-end 2020.
The company is offering two 5G plans: the “Professional” with 30 GB of data allowance costs 399 DKK (54 EUR) per month and the “Premium” with 100 GB of data allowance costs 499 DKK (67 EUR) per month. These two 5G price plans complete 4G cheaper plans with lower data allowances (3 GB at 199 DKK/month or 27 EUR and 10 GB at 299 DKK/month or 40 EUR).
Rival operator, Telenor Norway, launched 5G commercial services in March 2020 in eight domestic cities including Kongsberg, Elverum, Bodo, Askvoll, Fornebu, Kvitfjell, Spikersuppa (Oslo) and Trondheim. The company targeted to launch 5G services in the capital town Oslo and in Bergen, Stavanger and Sandnes by the end of 2020, and to light 8,500 base stations throughout the country within the next four years.
