28 September 2012 |


Si.mobil is claiming to have become the first operator to launch commercial LTE services in Slovenia.

The operator’s 4G network is initially available to subscribers in Ljubljana, Brnik and Bled and will offer data speeds of up to 100Mbps.

The radio access network for Si.mobil’s 4G network was provided by Nokia Siemens Networks.

The vendor also supplied its network management system for the monitoring and optimisation of Si.mobil’s 2G, 3G and 4G networks and will provide commissioning and optimisation for the operator’s base stations.

“Our customers can now enjoy a significantly superior user experience with fast download and response times,” said Johannes Nabecker, director of access and transport network at Si.mobil. “Nokia Siemens Networks has realised our vision of deploying a future-ready network across Ljubljana, Brnik and Bled. Users in these cities can now enjoy data speeds typically ranging from 30 to 80Mbps.”

“It took us just one month to implement this deal that paves the way for the introduction of 4G services in Slovenia”, said Daria Horvat, account manager at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are proud to partner Si.mobil in its endeavour to provide the best user experience to customers.”
