Hungary's Telenor says that it has upgraded its LTE network to support a theoretical peak download speed of 150Mbps.
Thanks to the availability of a 20MHz block in the 1800MHz band for the company after the spectrum contract extension, Telenor said that it can now double its 4G speed offering launched in summer 2012.
The 4G network offering a download speed of up to 150 Mbps will be made available in nearly a quarter of Hungary's territory by the end of the year with coverage provided in more than 100 settlements including Miskolc, Veszprém and Szeged.
"After securing extension and additional spectrum, we are accelerating
our investments to deliver the widest and best 4G coverage to our valued
customers", commented Christopher Laska, CEO of Telenor Hungary.
