Elisa launches 4G over 800MHz band

13 Aug 2013

Just a few days after confirming that it had been granted spectrum in the 800MHz band by the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority (ETSA), mobile network operator Elisa has confirmed that it has used the frequencies to launch a 4G network, in line with its previously announced plans. As a result of the development Elisa now claims to offer LTE-based services to 95% of the country’s territory via the combination of its new 800MHz infrastructure and its existing 4G networks operating over the 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands. Meanwhile, having deployed 240 new base stations for its 800MHz 4G network, the operator noted that in total it now has more 820 4G base stations in operation, including those deployed for its 1800MHz/2600MHz networks.
