Tele2 NL, formerly Versatel Telecom International, is planning the launch of 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in the Netherlands, Telecompaper reports. The virtual operator has reportedly built a trial mobile network in parts of Diemen and Amsterdam based on E-UTRA technology, enabling connection speeds of up to 100Mbps/50Mbps (download/upload). Tele2 received four licences in the 2.6GHz frequency auction of April 2010 and at the time said it was still evaluating whether or not to roll out alone or with a partner. It paid EUR400,000 (USD527,588) for 2×20MHz in the 2545MHz-2565MHz band paired with the 2665MHz-2685MHz band. Tele2’s existing MVNO service in the Netherlands had 383,000 customers at the end of March 2010.
