Telenor 4G network covers 57% of population ahead of schedule


Telenor Bulgaria has completed the launch of fourthgeneration (4G) of mobile technology services under the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard in all initially planned locations in the country. The launch was completed well ahead of the December 15 schedule and currently, the company provides outdoor 4G coverage to 56.73% of the country’s population.


Telenor 4G services are now available in all Bulgarian cities with population of more than 20,000, including all regional centers and the most popular winter resorts and provide high-speed mobile data, vastly improved user mobile app experience, faster browsing and video streaming and download and upload at maximum speed of up to 75 Мbps. Telenor will continue to expand its 4G coverage well into 2016 as it expects to receive additional spectrum in the 1800 MHz band from the Communication Regulation Commission (CRC). The 4G service by Telenor was launched commercially on December 1 and is available at no additional cost for all company clients until January 31, 2016.


To enjoy the faster and better Telenor 4G network, users must be within the 4G network coverage and have 4G-enabled handsets and SIM-cards, which are all Telenor SIM cards (including 3in1 SIMs) purchased or replaced in the last several years. All users may check the availability of 4G services for their SIM-cards by sending a free of charge SMS to short number 144. Users with older SIM-cards may replace them free of charge at any Telenor or official partner shop where a wide variety of 4G-enabled devices is also available, after December 1. With the recently launched Telenor Christmas offers, all clients who sign up a new contract or extend their existing subscription by January 31, 2016 will get up to four times more national call minutes and bundle MB at maximum speed.


Full information on the Telenor 4G network coverage, the tariffs and special offers and the available 4G-enabled handsets is available at the company’s official website and also at any operator or official partner shop.
