Ukko Mobile has partnered with Huawei to commercially launch 4G LTE service in Finland operating on 450MHz spectrum. The network claims to cover 99.9 percent of the population of Finland.
The 450MHz LTE band provides wide coverage and relatively low cost deployment, and is the best solution for wireless bandwidth deployment with large coverage requirements. As a strategic partner of Ukko Mobile, Huawei provides end-to-end LTE450MHz network solutions, facilitating the migration of CDMA450MHz to LTE450MHz.
Huawei LTE 450MHz network solutions can not only facilitate the smooth migration of CDMA 450MHz to LTE 450MHz, but also re-use legacy network resources like base stations, sites, power, and antennas to help decrease network investment. During the next six months, Ukko Mobile plans to launch an innovative prepaid-based family-oriented wireless broadband access service targeting more remote areas and locations
