Two cellcos to begin LTE trials

18 Aug 2010

Polish cellular operators CenterNet and Mobyland have been granted permission to set up three test transmitters which will allow them to trial Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. According to a report from CellularNews, the two firms will be conducting LTE trials in the 1800MHz band in Lodz and Aleksandrowie Kujawskim. In August 2009 Mobyland and CenterNet signed a letter of intent to share usage of their 1700MHz/1800MHz spectrum for rolling out 4G LTE services. Mobyland is a wholly owned subsidiary of another Polish cellular operator, Aero2, although it continues to operate under its own name.
