Being "Denmark’s best mobile network" is no excuse for complacency. Quite the opposite. This is why we constantly work to become even better, so that we are ready to deal with any technological challenges in the future.
We use 4+ technology in a large part of our network and thus theoretically, we can provide speeds of over 400 Mbps. 4G+ is a further development of 4G and the front-runner for 5G, where different frequencies can be used at the same time, so as to better utilise capacity and thus provide you with better coverage. The frequencies are the bands by which the mobile signals are carried, and the lower the frequency, the longer the range, and the better ability to penetrate buildings and to provide coverage indoors.
We have the technology ready to provide the speeds of tomorrow. In a trial area around the major amusement park Tivoli in Copenhagen, we installed 1 Gbps solutions, so that users can test the technology of tomorrow. And if 1 Gbps was not enough, we have actually already delivered speeds of up to 2 Gbps at TDC Group’s location.
VoLTE and VoWiFi
VoLTE and VoWiFi are new terms that we will hear a lot more about in the future.
VoLTE will allow you to keep using 4G when making a phone call while moving at the same time. In other words, maintain high data speeds all of the time. At the same time, the call time will become shorter and the quality of the call will be better compared to the current 3G.
This form of connection will also be able to be used when customers from different telephone companies call each other. For TDC Group, it will lead to stronger coverage, due to our prize-winning 4G mobile network.
Indoor conversations with WiFi
VoWiFi will allow people to use their WiFi signal indoors to carry out telephone conversations as if it was a small mobile antenna, at the same time the technology ensures that the user can move between VoWiFi (wifi) and VoLTE (mobile network) without losing their telephone connection.
We expect that our customers will be able to use VoLTE and VoWiFi at the beginning of 2017.
Some facts about future proofing
Spectrum and frequencies
The Danish government auctions off radio frequencies on an ongoing basis. The last auction earned the government over DKK 1 billion, and 65 MHz was allocated in total.
Currently, if you have a 20 MHz spectrum on 4G, it means you can transmit data at speeds of 150 Mbps and receive data at speeds of 50 Mbps on an antenna. The technology is being constantly improved, so we expect that already by next year, we will be able to raise the maximum speeds from over 400 Mbps to nearly 600 Mbps in the network with the current spectrum.
What does it mean for you?
A good mobile network must be updated with the latest technology at all times.
With TDC Group, you are always ensured that you have the best solution for a good connection – today and tomorrow.
TDC Group has been bringing people closer together since 1882 – via telephone calls, messages on mobile phones, emails on laptops, updates on Facebook and television series. We provide the connections than bind society together. Our goal is to constantly bring friends and companies closer together, regardless of the distance, using technology and options that just a moment ago, were unimaginable.
