LTE usage in the 900/1800 MHz
• Offers a cost effective opportunity of introducing LTE
services in areas covered by 900 MHz networks
• The cost savings originate from the significantly
larger cell size of 900 MHz networks compared to
higher frequency bands networks
• There is no doubt that refarming of 900 and
1800 MHz bands to LTE should be allowed, but the
point in time when this refarming should take place
has to be considered
Thanks for the attention
