As spectrum in traditional FDD bands is scarce, 3 Sweden will take advantage of more available spectrum in the 2600 MHz band 38 – currently used by only a few operators in Western Europe – to deploy TD-LTE-Advanced technology. This will allow them to immediately increase bandwidth and speeds for customers, meeting the growing demand for mobile use in the home. Nokia will complete the network deployment – which will include Gothenburg, Sweden’s second most populous city – in the first half of 2016.
