EMT launches Estonia’s first commercial HSDPA network

27 Apr 2006

Estonian mobile operator Eesti Mobiiltelefon (EMT) has launched the country’s first commercial HSDPA mobile network, rolling out so-called 3.5G services in the capital Tallinn. EMT launched Estonia’s maiden 3G service over a W-CDMA network supplied by Ericsson in October 2005; the Swedish vendor has overseen the upgrade of the network with HSDPA technology. It now offers 3G and 3.5G services to users in Tallinn and is planning to expand coverage nationwide in phases. Long-time partner Ericsson is EMT’s sole supplier of W-CDMA and HSDPA technology and related services; it was previously selected as the cellco’s sole provider of GSM core and radio network equipment, including GPRS/EDGE platforms.
