9 Sep 2015

Sweden-based Tele2 Group has reached its target of achieving 90% population coverage with its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks in the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The firm said it spent EUR50 million (USD56 million) in the region in 2014 to attain its coverage goal and that it will continue to expand its 4G network coverage, along with increasing network capacity, as both data consumption and the number of mobile internet users are expected to grow significantly.

Malin Holmberg, Market Director for the Baltics, Croatia and Austria at Tele2 Group, commented: ‘Over the past year Tele2 has focused on building the best performing 4G network in the Baltics to ensure that our existing and new customers can enjoy superior mobile data experience, not only in larger cities but also in rural areas across the whole region. We are confident that high 4G network quality and wide coverage will secure customers loyalty as well as contribute to revenue growth from data services.’
