Ukko Mobile and Digita ink ten year wholesale deal

3 Dec 2015

Finland’s Ukko Mobile, which offers LTE-based services using spectrum in the 450MHz band, has announced a ten year deal under which it will gain access to the antennas and masts owned by local broadcaster Digita. In a press release confirming the development Ukko said that the agreement will allow it to enhance both its network reliability and its coverage area.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, in December 2014 Ukko Mobile switched on what it claimed was the world’s first commercial LTE-450 network. The infrastructure was rolled out in collaboration with Chinese vendor Huawei, with the new network covering 99.9% of the Finnish population at launch.
