Tele2 Estonia to roll out 4G network on 2100 Mhz band in collaboration with Nokia

Tele2 Estonia, the Estonian telecom unit of Stockholm based Tele2 group which operates in 10 countries, has announced that it is collaborating with Nokia Networks to roll out 4G network using 2100 Mhz band.


Tele2 said that the Estonian unit will be the first operator in the world to use the 2100 MHz band, that is usually reserved for 3G services, to deploy 4G network.

It aims to have the fastest 4G network in the globe by using the 2100 Mhz band. Using tri-carrier aggregation, the operator is aiming for speeds of 375 Mbps. Increases in capacity and coverage will also be supported by the use of software-defined networking from the latest generation Nokia equipment.

After this deployment, many operators are likely to follow in deploying 4G on 2100 Mhz on tri-carrier aggregation since spectrum is quite less & 4G is gaining momentum.

@Imon Dear author, Estonia is a country similar to size of state of Haryana, so 4G on 2300 MHz will also work nicely over there, whereas India needs 4G LTE on 700 MHz, which is neither a concern of DoT or operators or industry experts. Quite disappointing.

Thing is, the 700 MHz band will not be available for auction unless it is vacated by certain bureaucratic entities like Doordarshan. So, you can literally forget about enjoying LTE services on this band. Cheers! 🙂

+1 Kaushik. That’s why I said not a matter of concern for DoT.
