Band Details : AP Circle Specific
Frequency Band : 3 / 1800Mhz Band - Telenor deployed Lean LTE on this band
Download Bandwidth: 3MHz
Upload Bandwidth: 3MHz
Voice functionality : Voice falls back to 2G from 4G/LTE. FYI: There is no 3G service available.
In what Telenor calls it as the fastest network upgrade, all its BTS which serve 2G now also serve 4G/LTE. So, where ever you have 2G signal of Telenor, you can enjoy LTE as well.
