Telekom Slovenije, which operates cellular services in Slovenia via its Mobitel division, has disclosed that its 4G LTE network now covers more than 80% of the population and 200 towns, after it deployed 100 new 4G base stations in the last six months to take its total to over 400 LTE cell sites. Telekom, which currently claims a peak LTE data speed of 150Mbps, added that it plans to reach a 92% LTE population footprint by the end of this year under an overall EUR107 million (USD118 million) mobile and fixed network expansion and upgrade budget. The operator launched LTE in May 2013 and won additional 800MHz/2600MHz spectrum to augment its existing 1800MHz 4G frequency band in April 2014, TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes.
