ESPOO, Finland -- Sonera, one of the leading mobile operators in Finland, has introduced extremely fast 300 Mbps download data speeds in certain areas of Helsinki. The operator launched its commercial LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) network and is now able to provide higher network capacity, speed and performance.

Carrier aggregation accelerates typical user data rates by more flexible radio resource selection in LTE-Advanced networks. Operators can create larger, virtual carrier bandwidths for services by combining separate spectrum bands. Nokia’s LTE-Advanced networks can deliver data to mobile devices at rates most people have never experienced on a residential broadband connection. Sonera now offers data speeds in Finland’s capital up to two times faster than previously possible with 4G LTE.

Key facts:

  • Downlink data rates of up to 300 Mbps are achieved by aggregating spectrum resources with a total bandwith of up to 40 MHz

    • 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz frequency bands were used

    • Sonera business customers using Sonera Sopiva Pro or Real 4G Max subscriptions can now take advantage of the service

    • Sonera offers Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphones to use LTE-A and new devices are being added to the portfolio at the beginning of 2015

    • The agreement includes systems integration services and Nokia’s Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station
