Vodafone CR steps up 4G coverage plans with 2100MHz LTE launch

27 Nov 2014

Mobile operator Vodafone Czech Republic is accelerating plans to cover Czech cities with 4G by using a block of 2100MHz frequencies to augment its current Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks – which operate in the 800MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands. In a press release Vodafone said that alongside the bandwidth it secured at the recent 4G auction, it will use its 2100MHz frequencies to cover cities with LTE, which will overlap its existing 3G service there. 3G will still remain in operation, it added. The first customers will be able to enjoy LTE on 2100MHz in Kladno, Olomouc and Slany as early as in December 2014. All cities should be covered by the end of summer 2015. The carrier will deploy LTE on the 2100MHz band using a 10MHz block of spectrum with a maximum theoretical download speed of up to 75Mbps, the same peak speed as LTE-800.
