Dutch telecoms operator Tele2 NL is to begin offering commercial services over its own mobile network in January 2015 according to a statement from the provider’s business-to-business director Fedor Hoevenaars at a recent telecoms conference, cited by Telecompaper. Tele2’s under-deployment 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network reached coverage of between 50% and 60% of the country in August 2014 while Tele2 disclosed in its Q3 2014 report that ‘construction of new [4G] sites is going according to plan … an internal testing programme has started, with a number of employees testing all different aspects of the 4G network … During the quarter, Samsung also validated Tele2’s 4G network, enabling all their LTE devices to use the network.’ Tele2 won its 800MHz/2600MHz licence in the government’s auction of October 2012, and was officially allocated the spectrum in January 2013; the ‘digital dividend’ licensing stipulated a two-year launch deadline.
