Regulator Upholds Wireless Operator's 4G Claims ({{commentsTotal}})


After a competitor challenged the country's leading wireless operator for its 4G coverage claims, the Technical Surveillance Authority has found that EMT's stated figures stand up.

The authority checked whether EMT was complying with the conditions of its frequency permit for the 790-862 MHz band, and said on Tuesday that the operator passed with flying colors.

EMT was under obligation to install 4G base stations that would cover 95 percent of Estonian territory with download speeds of at least 5 Mbit/s.

Elisa had claimed that at least 20 percent was not covered.

The authority said that the difference stemmed from measurement and analysis methods.

The authority found from a sampling of 54 points that the average download speed was 18.1 Mbit/s and the average upload speed was 11.1 Mbit/s.

The coverage area was estimated by the authority on the basis of signal strengths at 95.4 percent of Estonia.
