Elisa says it now offers 4G services across entirety of Tallinn

20 Sep 2013

Estonian mobile network operator Elisa has announced that its 4G LTE network now covers 100% of the capital Tallinn. The development comes just over a month after the cellco launched 4G services using 800MHz spectrum, having been granted such frequencies by the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority (ETSA) in early August 2013; previously it had offered LTE using only the 1800MHz and 2600MHz frequencies. The operator has highlighted the benefits of its lower-band spectrum when it comes to coverage enhancements, particularly for reaching customers indoors.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in rolling out 4G services using the 800MHz band last month Elisa claimed that it could provide superfast mobile broadband to 95% of the country’s territory via the combination of its 800MHz infrastructure and its existing 4G networks operating over the 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands. Meanwhile, having deployed 240 new base stations for its 800MHz 4G network at launch, the operator noted that it had more 820 4G base stations in operation, including those deployed for its existing infrastructure.
