T-Mobile Netherlands (T-Mobile NL) has announced that it has switched on its 900MHz Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in Amsterdam, augmenting its existing 1800MHz 4G coverage. The use of 900MHz spectrum is expected to eliminate capacity issues in busy locations, as well as improving indoor coverage.
Going forward, 900MHz 4G will be introduced in Utrecht by the end of the month, with Rotterdam set to follow by mid-June and The Hague in early July. 4G LTE at 900MHz should be offered across the whole of the Randstad (the conurbation consisting of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht and the surrounding areas) by mid-August this year.
As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, T-Mobile expects to offer nationwide coverage (95% of the population) via its LTE network by October 2015.
