Mobile Vikings will soon provide fixed internet at home subscriptions in addition to its mobile telephony and surfing plans. This was announced by the telecom operator, which was recently acquired by Proximus.
Mobile Vikings has specialized in an offer for consumers, particularly young people, who use a lot of mobile data in recent years. Another unique feature is that clients can save money on their bill by shopping at associated web retailers. Last year, DPG Media sold the company to Proximus.
Two subscriptions are available.
The Mobile Vikings product is now extending with fixed internet under the auspices of the telecom operator. There will be two subscriptions available on the market: 38 euros per month and 53 euros per month, with a 3 euro discount if a subscription or prepaid card for mobile calling and surfing is also included.
The speed of the internet is the difference between the two formulas. Unless the supplier identifies fraud, the data volume is infinite in both circumstances.
It’s notable that Mobile Vikings will provide faster speeds than its parent business, Proximus. On the new fiber optic network, the 53 euro membership allows for theoretical download speeds of up to 1 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 500 Mbps. The upload speed of Proximus Fiber subscriptions for private individuals is currently limited to a maximum of 100 Mbps. Fiber optics are not yet widely available.
In order to test the new subscriptions, Mobile Vikings will have a thousand existing customers join up for them. The official launch date is set for mid-June.
Proximus has another subsidiary brand, Scarlet, in addition to Mobile Vikings. This concentrates on low prices and does not yet provide access to the new rapid fiber optic network. Scarlet, on the other hand, provides digital television, whereas Mobile Vikings does not.
