Lattelecom launching mobile internet services

22 Jan 2009

Having announced it would roll out a new fibre-optic broadband network earlier this week, Latvian wireline and broadband operator Lattelecom is set to offer mobile broadband services, according to local news sources. Lattelecom is understood to have inked a deal in December 2008 that will allow it to offer services over Triatel’s CDMA2000 1x-based network in the 450MHz band. Lattelecom will offer mobile internet at speeds of up to 3.1Mbps, and three different packages will be available offering monthly data limits of 500MB, 5GB and 10GB. The operators have been running trials of the service, which were reportedly completed on 21 January.
