Telefónica Deutschland said that it draws a very positive half-year result for its LTE expansion in the O2 network. In the course of this year alone, the company has put 4,400 new LTE transmitters into operation throughout Germany.

This corresponds to about one additional LTE transmitter per hour, which is new in the o2 network. With a total of around 10,000 planned new LTE transmitters this year, Telefónica Deutschland is implementing the largest LTE expansion program in the company's history.

In large and small cities, Telefónica Deutschland has further expanded its own LTE network in recent months and upgraded existing LTE sites with additional LTE capacities. However, the focus of the LTE expansion is primarily on rural regions that have not yet been supplied with LTE. 

Telefónica Deutschland launched its LTE expansion offensive at the beginning of the second half of 2018 - parallel to the previous network integration at the time. In total, the company put more than 8,000 new LTE transmitters into operation in an extraordinary effort over the past twelve months.

Cayetano Carbajo Martin, CTO of Telefonica Deutschland
LTE is and will remain a central technology for digitization in Germany. The performance limit for current and future everyday applications is far from being reached. In the interests of our customers, we are therefore working with full speed to bring fast Internet access also to rural areas.
