KPN will start LTE 1800 massive deployment

Interesting enough KPN (Netherlands) already running LTE 2600 in Utrecht and The Hague for business users, but "it is not suitable for a large network", so KPN starts "big rollout" of LTE 1800 network. \tweakers.net

All four mobile operators in Netherlands (Hutchison 3 HK, Ziggo, Tele2 and KPN) provide limited LTE 2600 services from May 2012, but KPN is the first who announced massive deployment. Surprise or not, it will be one more LTE 1800 network.

The competitors probably plan to choose between 800 MHz opportunity (regulator OPTA is expected to auction 800 MHz spectrum around Oct. 2012) and 1800/2600 alternatives.
