Tele2 Latvia has revealed a notable increase of 166 percent in mobile data usage on its 5G network since the beginning of this year. With nearly 150 5G base stations installed across various populated areas in Latvia, Tele2 says its 5G network is now accessible in over 100 locations.
Surge in 5G Data Usage
Among the cities experiencing the highest data consumption on Tele2's 5G network are Marupe, Daugavpils, Olaine, and Riga. Currently, Tele2's mobile communication network has registered over 115,000 devices supporting 5G technology.
Expansion of Tele2's 5G Network Coverage
According to Tele2, the company is expanding its 5G network to ensure wide coverage for customers throughout Latvia, promoting digital equality between urban and rural areas.
To achieve this, Tele2 is developing 5G technology in the lower frequency spectrum of 700 MHz, which allows for wider coverage and is particularly suitable for rural and remote regions.
Tele2 says its 5G network has been progressively expanding since June, reaching locations such as Kandava, Seda, Ilukste, Vestiena, Vane, Trapene, Padure, Bramberge, Odukalns, and others.

The surge in data consumption on Tele2's 5G network reflects the growing demand for high-speed and reliable connectivity in Latvia.
