Monday 14 May 2018 | 16:23 CET | News
Telefonica has made the most progress out of Germany's three mobile network operators in building up its LTE network in Germany over the past three years, although it still lags behind rivals Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone for overall LTE network coverage in Germany, reported TelTarif.de. A network coverage map from the website Allnet-Flatrate.net found that Telefonica increased its LTE network coverage of Germany by 17 percent since 2015, giving it a coverage rate of 66 percent across Germany in 2018, up from 49 percent three years ago, wrote TelTarif.
