Mobile Vikings starts with fixed internet – News

From now on Mobile Vikings will also offer fixed internet. The product is still in the testing phase, and anyone can sign up from mid-June.

Customers of operator Hasselt can currently participate in a trial where the company wants to test as many use cases as possible. That offer is currently limited to a thousand users, but the intention is to open it up to everyone by summer, including those who aren’t a mobile Viking yet. The trial period should above all remove the last technical obstacles.

For its offer, Mobile Vikings uses the network of Proximus, which took over the operator from DPG at the end of 2020. There are two plans: 100 Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload for 38 euros per month, or 1 Gbps of download and 500 Mbps upload for 53 euros per month.

There are a few things to keep in mind: for example, your VDSL connection must be able to reach at least 40 Mbps for the first subscription. In the second case, you need a fiber optic connection. That is the network that Proximus and Fiberklaar are implementing now and for years to come.

cheap but not cheaper

How does the Mobile Vikings offering compare to the competition among low-cost players? As for the price, it is not the cheapest offer. For example, sister company Scarlet’s offering is much cheaper at €23 (20Mbps) or €32 (50Mbps) per month, but also much more limited in speed.

If we compare with EDPnet, we find the same speeds as the cheapest Mobile Vikings subscription for 35.95 euros per month. But at the top end, EDPnet ‘only’ goes up to 500Mbps download, where Mobile Vikings offers 1Gbps. EDPnet is a few euros cheaper here (45.95 euros per month), but if you have a fiber optic connection the offer is twice as fast.

Unlimited

It seems that Mobile Vikings, as with their mobile subscriptions, is targeting those who use a lot of data and at the highest possible speed. The offer will also be slightly cheaper for those who also have a mobile subscription or a prepaid card from the operator. Then there is a discount of three euros per month. The first year there are also no installation costs.

Finally, Hasselt’s operator emphasizes that there is no limit to the volume of data. Unless there is suspicion of fraud or abuse, the speed is not reduced after a certain volume.
