TeliaSonera has won frequencies in the 800 MHz band in the beauty contest in Estonia arranged by the Estonian Technical Surveillance Authority.

The 800 MHz frequencies will enable a faster roll-out of 4G services in Estonian rural areas. With the new frequencies TeliaSonera will roll-out 4G to cover 95% of Estonian territory in the middle of June, 2013.

4G enables a better user experience than other mobile data technologies due to its faster connection speeds and low latency.

TeliaSonera has already built a 4G network, using the 1800/2600 MHz combination in Estonia. In the spectrum beauty contest TeliaSonera won 2 x 10 MHz frequencies in the 800 MHz band.

TeliaSonera was the first operator in the world to commercially launch 4G in 2009. Today TeliaSonera offers 4G services in nine countries: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Azerbaijan and Moldova and has announced the launch of 4G services in Spain on 18 July 2013. TeliaSonera has also made 4G live connections in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
