T-Mobile Netherlands says it now offers near nationwide coverage with its LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) network which was launched in January this year. The telco says that LTE-A technology has been extended to its entire 4G system, which reaches 96% of the population. The network uses carrier aggregation across the 900MHz and 1800MHz bands, providing data download speeds which are double those available via the basic 4G equipment. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, T-Mobile is the third largest cellco in the Netherlands by subscribers, behind KPN and Vodafone but ahead of newest entrant Tele2.
