Finland paves way for 4G rollout

Finnish carriers TeliaSonera, Elisa and DNA have all been allocated additional wireless spectrum, potentially allowing them to start building out 4G mobile networks immediately.

According to Finland’s minister of communications, Suvi Linden, the decision is unique in Europe, with the frequencies located in the 1800MHz range. This band, which has traditionally been used for GSM services, offers substantially wider coverage at a lower cost than the more commonly reserved 2600MHz band.
