LMT launches LTE in Latvia

Wednesday 1 June 2011 | 14:32 CET | News
LMT, TeliaSonera's mobile operator in Latvia, has launched commercial LTE services. LMT said the first base station is in Jurmala, a coastal town west of Riga, and coverage will be gradually expanded in line with the 3G network. The latter already covers 80 percent of the country's territory. LMT customers can purchase the ZTE MF820 USB modem to access the LTE network from a computer. No pricing details for the data service were released. TeliaSonera launched LTE in Lithuania at the end of April and also operates LTE networks in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Estonia.
