Half a decade ago, network operators in Europe have started to use UMTS not only in the 2100 MHz band but also in the 900 MHz band that was, up until then, only used for GSM services. A good example is France with rural coverage and big cities in the UK. Now it seem seems LTE is also getting some traction in what is called LTE band 8. According to a report by Telegeography, T-Mobile Netherlands has started using LTE in the 900 MHz band in Amsterdam. An interesting move, just makes me wonder how much spectrum they have available. On the device side LTE band 8 is already supported by a number of devices, for example by the current generation of Apple devices. In other words there will be immediate use of the extra resources.
