Elisa continues Finnish LTE network expansion

Thursday 15 October 2015 | 12:06 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa said that while 5G technology remains under development, it is continuing the expansion of its 4G network. At a seminar on the future of networking technologies on 14 October, it said it believes that the first 5G pilots will be presented in 2018 in connection with the Seoul Olympic Winter Games. Elisa said its LTE network currently covers 97 percent of the Finnish population, but during the autumn and winter, it will extends its LTE grid to Enontekio, Inari, Kolari and Sodankyla, among other places. Rovaniemi, Simo and Posio will also get a number of new base stations.
