ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has announced that the 3G network supplied and developed by ZTE for BASE Company is the fastest 3G network in Belgium in terms of uplink and downlink speeds..

The assessment was made by Commsquare on the three mobile operators in Belgium during Q4 2013. Results are based on drive tests of 4,400km with 4,100 data service tests. The test results ranked BASE's 3G network as first in the average uplink and downlink rates, surfing/web session success rate and fast accessibility to the network and services thanks to high performance of dual carrier feature for download and enhanced uplink feature (2ms TTI).

BASE Company, a Belgian subsidiary of Royal KPN N.V., is one of the three major mobile operators in Belgium. In 2012, ZTE became the exclusive 3G supplier for BASE Company to upgrade and modernise its 3G existing network. The newly-built 3G network provides excellent performance to drive user growth. In addition, as its exclusive 4G&EPC supplier, ZTE helped BASE Company to launch LTE services in 15 cities since 1st October 2013. Today around 4.4 million Belgians are covered by 4G.

“At BASE Company we know that our customers expect three things from their operator: a good price, a good service and a good network. Over the last few years we have made significant investments in our mobile network bringing the company to the unique position in Europe of being a mobile challenger that combines a leading position in price, service and network. Today, BASE Company is the undisputed number one when it comes to speech quality. In terms of speed, we offer the fastest 3G network in Belgium”, said Jos Donvil, CEO at BASE Company.

"BASE Company is an important customer for ZTE. It has high requirements for providers and partners. We deliver efficient and innovative solutions that help to improve BASE Company’s network. European network operators, whose networks were built or upgraded with the help of ZTE, have repeatedly received top ratings by independent auditors in recent years. We are proud that we can continue this series," said Li Jun, General Manager of ZTE in Benelux and Germany.
