Monday 29 June 2015 | 12:14 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa said has it met its 800 MHz licence conditions in good time before the deadline, and now covers 97 percent of the population of Finland. Elisa was obliged to reach 97 percent LTE coverage at the beginning of 2019, but met this target in June. Elisa's mobile network director Sami Komulainen said Elisa will continue to extend what he said is Finland's most comprehensive 4G network, and aims to match its reach to that of its current 3G grid.
