Telia Estonia invested almost EUR25 million (USD28 million) in the development of its fixed and mobile networks last year, which it says marked its highest annual spend. The firm increased 4G capacity at 150 locations across the country, while adding 20 new sites. Meanwhile, 125 new 5G base stations were installed during 2021 to take the end-year total to 140, with its 5G footprint now reaching parts of all Estonian counties. Telia said the expected allocation of three new 3.5GHz 5G licences this year will boost its next-generation services.
In the fixed sector Telia spent EUR15 million, deploying fibre infrastructure to an additional 57,000 households. The firm offers download rates of up to 1Gbps via fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks and up to 200Mbps using a combination of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) and VDSL2 technologies.
