TeliaSonera Upgrades Backhaul on LTE Base Stations to 100 Mbps

TeliaSonera, which activated the first commercial LTE service in the world in December 2009, announced the next step in its next-generation mobile broadband roll-out. The company is upgrading base stations to 100 Mbps, beginning with sites in central Stockholm and extending to the rest of the network in Spring. The upgraded backhaul will enable downlink speeds of up to 80 Mbps to customers in optimal locations.

Telia's 4G network is currently installed in the central parts of Stockholm and in parts of the Stockholm International, Kista and Hammarby Sjöstad. Telia plans to build out 4G in 25 locations in Sweden. During the third quarter of this year, the 4G network will be launched in Lund, Västerås, Malmö, Gothenburg, Uppsala and Linköping.

The carrier's common 4G/LTE core network will be delivered exclusively by Ericsson and the radio networks by Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks.
