O2 Germany launches rural LTE network trials

Sunday 24 October 2010 | 16:19 CET | News
Telefonica O2 Germany is starting the next stage in developing LTE, by launching pilots in rural areas following the launch of urban pilot networks in Munich in early September. In Teutschenthal near Halle and Ebersberg near Munich, the first LTE pilot networks with frequencies of 800 megahertz will be switched on in November. The first O2 customers will be able to try out the new broadband network a month later and in 2011 construction and commercialisation of LTE will begin across Germany.
