18 Nov 2011

Finnish service provider Elisa has revealed that its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network will be available in 100 cities by the end of the year, with coverage, speeds and the number of devices available set to grow further in 2012. The operator currently provides LTE connectivity via a network dongle from Huawei, but from the beginning of next year it expects to launch 4G-enabled tablets and smartphones. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Elisa launched its LTE network in December 2010, almost a year after initiating HSPA+ services.
