Estonian mobile network operator EMT has deployed its LTE network six months earlier than expected, according to equipment vendor, Ericsson.
The deployment boost was thanks to the allocation of a block of 800Mhz spectrum which allowed the operator to cover rural areas with fewer base stations.
Valdo Kalm, CEO at EMT, says: "Now, 95 percent of Estonia is geographically covered by our LTE network, which is very good news for our subscribers. Over 30 percent of our mobile-broadband subscribers have already opted for an LTE plan, and now we're bringing that option to people in the other half of the country."
EMT first launched its LTE network in 2010.
