EMT claims more than 50% of new customers are choosing 4G

23 Nov 2012

Estonia’s mobile market leader Eesti Mobiiltelefon (EMT) has reported that so far this month more than 50% of all of its new mobile data subscribers are taking up services which connect via its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. By comparison, the cellco claimed that between 10% and 15% of new accesses in August and September 2012 had signed up for its 4G products, while that figure doubled to 30% in October. The operator, however, stopped short of revealing the exact number of LTE subscribers it currently has.

EMT launched Estonia’s first 4G network in December 2010, and by the end of 2012 it expects 70% of the population to have access to the infrastructure, while nationwide coverage is expected by end-2014.
