Tele2 Estonia rolls out 4G with 2,100 MHz band

Wednesday 15 July 2015 | 14:33 CET | News
Tele2 Estonia announced that it's working with Nokia Networks to roll out 4G using the 2,100 MHz band. Tele2 said it's one of the first operators in the world to use the band traditionally reserved for 3G services to develop 4G. It aims to have the fastest 4G network in the world thanks to using the 2,100 MHz band. Using tri-carrier aggregation, the operator is aiming for speeds of 375 Mbps. Increases in capacity and coverage will also be supported by the use of software-defined networking. Last year Tele2 already swapped out its entire network for the latest generation of Nokia equipment.
