Mobile operator Telefónica O2 this week launched LTE services in the Czech Republic. The network covers the municipality of Jesenice and its surroundings; a total population of almost 10,000.
The Czech regulator has pulled the plug on an auction for 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz spectrum after bids rocketed out of control.
Astellia, a leading provider of monitoring solutions for the optimization of mobile network QoS and QoE, has been selected by Vodafone Czech Republic as a main partner for testing and maximizing its network performance in the context of its 3-year equipment swap project. The contract will enable Vodafone to ensure fast and successful replacement of more than 40 BSCs in its 2G network and deliver the highest customer experience to its subscribers.
The rumours were true. Vodafone, the world’s biggest operator by revenues, and pan-European carrier Telefonica, owner of the O2 brand, are sharing network infrastructure across Europe.
