Yoigo to Launch LTE Services in Spain
TeliaSonera’s subsidiary Yoigo will launch 4G LTE services in Spain in July. The commercial launch of the 4G network for contract customers will be held on July 18 in Madrid with 405 base stations, more cities to be added later this year.
LTE services will be offered at the 1800 MHz band and will give maximum speed of over 100 Mbps. Its LTE network will cover 37% of the Spanish population in late 2013, with more than 2,500 base stations, and 75% of the population by the end of 2014.
By launching LTE in Spain, TeliaSonera now offers 4G in all countries where the Group’s business area Mobility Services is present, ie in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and Spain.
