TD steps up urban LTE rollout

26 Apr 2012

Telekom Deutschland (TD), the domestic fixed and mobile division of German telecoms company Deutsche Telekom, has expanded its urban Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network to four new cities. 4G services, which support download speeds of up to 100Mbps, are now available in Bonn, Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich. After connecting around 1,000 rural areas to 800MHz LTE mobile broadband services in 2010, TD first brought LTE to the city in July 2011, when it launched a 4G network operating in the 1.8GHz band in Cologne, with commercial service following in Frankfurt in February 2012. By the end of the year, TD aims to expand its urban 4G network to around 100 towns and cities.
