Thursday 29 July 2010 | 11:50 CET | News
Telefonica O2 Germany plans to build two LTE networks in Munich and Halle before the end of this year. The networks will be based on LTE in the 2.6 GHz band and available as pilot services. At the same time, O2 plans to deploy two LTE networks based on the 800 MHz band in two rural areas: Ebersberg east of Munich and Teutschenthal west of Halle. Network building will start in September. O2 Germany partnered with Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks for the network equipment. All networks will be test networks without commercial offerings for end-customers.
