COTA, a new player in Spanish telecoms selected Nokia Siemens Networks as sole supplier for an end-to-end LTE service. COTA acquired 10 MHz in the 2.6 GHz band 38 auction in the summer of 2011. Wimax Online will benefit from the wholesale LTE access provided by COTA. In addition to extending the existing service portfolio with broadband offering, they will provide DSL-like services in the Murcia region where it is currently not possible to provide fixed-internet connectivity and VoIP. COTA also plans to provide television services through an IPTV-platform in the future.
