TeliaSonera says that it has won frequencies in the 800MHz band in the beauty contest in Estonia arranged by the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority.
The 800 MHz frequencies will enable a faster roll-out of 4G services in Estonian rural areas. With the new frequencies TeliaSonera will roll-out 4G to cover 95% of Estonian territory in the middle of June, 2013.
TeliaSonera has already built a 4G network, using the 1800/2600 MHz combination in Estonia. In the spectrum beauty contest TeliaSonera won 2 x 10 MHz frequencies in the 800 MHz band.
