TeliaSonera launches 4G / LTE network, Samsung GT-B3710 LTE dongle
TeliaSonera has become the world’s first mobile carrier to commercially launch a 4G/LTE network, as it just rolled out LTE services in Oslo, Norway, and Stockholm, Sweden.
For the moment, the only LTE product available via TeliaSonera is the Samsung GT-B3710 dongle, which can be connected to your laptop and provide download speeds of up to 100 Mbps. The B3710 uses Samsung’s Kalmia modem chip and supports the 2.6GHz LTE band.
The first 4G/LTE phones will probably be introduced by TeliaSonera next year.
“The use of mobile broadband in the Nordic countries is exploding and customers need higher speeds and capacity. This is why we launch 4G services in both Stockholm and Oslo,” declared Kenneth Karlberg, President and Head of Mobility Services at TeliaSonera.
TeliaSonera plans to gradually roll out LTE services in Sweden’s and Norway’s most important cities.
