Mobile Vikings will offer fixed internet – ICT news

Mobile Vikings app will now offer fixed internet. The solution is definitely still in the testing phase, but as of mid-June, everyone will be able to sign up for it.

Hasselt operator customers can currently participate in a test, where the company wants to try as many use cases as possible. This offer is currently limited to a thousand users, but the goal is to have it available to everyone by summer, even consumers who are not “mobile Vikings”. The main purpose of the testing period is to remove the last technical obstacles.

For its presentation, Mobile Vikings uses the Proximus network, which the operator acquired from the DPG at the end of 2020. Two subscriptions are planned: 100 Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload for 38 euros per month or 1 Gbps for download and 500 Mbps for upload For 53 euros per month.

However, certain points must be taken into account: for example, a consumer VDSL connection must be able to accept at least 40 Mbps for the first type of subscription. In the second case, an optical fiber connection will be necessary, in this case the network currently deployed by Proximus and Fiberklaar and in the coming years.

Affordable, but not the cheapest

How does Mobile Vikings present itself in the face of competition from “low-cost” players? In terms of price, it’s not the cheapest. Thus, sister company Scarlet’s offer is much more affordable with €23 (20Mbps) or €32 (50Mbps) per month, but it is also very limited in terms of speed.

Compared to EDPnet, we find the same more economical subscription speeds in Mobile Vikings at €35.95 per month. But at the top, EDPnet download “only” rises to 500Mbps compared to 1Gbps for Mobile Vikings. EDPnet is cheaper here by a few euros (45.95 euros per month), but with a fiber optic connection, Mobile Vkings’ offering is twice as fast.

Unlimited

Everything seems to indicate that Mobile Vikings, just as with mobile subscriptions, is targeting data-heavy consumers and as fast as possible. The offer is also slightly affordable for anyone with a mobile subscription or prepaid card from the operator. In this case, it comes to a discount of three euros per month. In the first year, there are also no installation costs.

Finally, the Hasselt operator insists that there is no limit to the size of the data. Except in cases of suspected fraud or abuse, the speed will not be reduced from a certain size.
