Later this month, on October 25, Apple’s latest smartphones will land in the Netherlands, and if you’re a customer of KPN, one of the country’s wireless providers, you’ll be happy to hear that its network will indeed support 4G on both the iPhone 5s and 5c. KPN is currently leading the way in 4G in the Netherlands, using a variety of bands for its network, which should cover roughly 80 percent of the country by the end of the year.

While 4G compatibility is typically a given in many countries, KPN’s 4G network originally wasn’t compatible with the iPhone 5 due to its use of an unsupported band. Now that the iPhone 5s and 5c have launched with support of KPN’s 800MHz band, the groundwork is set for plenty of high-speed iPhone fun.
