Tusmobil begins LTE rollout

21 May 2015

Slovenian cable TV and broadband operator Telemach has announced that the mobile network of its newly acquired mobile unit Tusmobil will be expanded and upgraded with Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology this year. The firm plans to deploy 4G equipment to cover 75% of the population by end-December, with equipment partner Huawei having already begun work on the upgrade in the country’s coastal region. Meanwhile, Tusmobil’s 3G network is to be expanded to offer 99% population coverage under a EUR50 million (USD55 million) rollout project. Telemach paid EUR110 million to acquire Tusmobil, Slovenia’s third-placed wireless operator, in a deal which completed last month.
