Telia internet coverage area
Telia's fast internet (3.5G) network covers the whole of Estonia and enables surfing the web with speeds comparable to broadband.
The coverage of Telia's 3.5G network becomes denser each week!
Telia was the first operator in Estonia to launch fourth generation (4G) internet connection network. 4G enables speeds up to 100 Mbit/s. As of the end of 2011, Telia 4G is available in all county centers.
Telia Internet can be accessed via both laptop and desktop computers. There's no difference for the user whether internet connection is made via Telia Internet or regular broadband – the image on the screen is exactly the same regardless of the type of connection.
As of June 2013
Telia internet with the speed of EDGE (field strength is at least 34 dBµV/m)
Telia internet with the speed of 3,5G (field strength is between 43 and58 dBµV/m 5MHz)
Telia internet with the speed of 3,5G (field strength is at least 58 dBµV/m 5MHz)

3. Other requirements related to the interface
To access user interface, terminal device (ending point of mobile network) has to have inserted an activated SIM card issued by Telia or Telia's partner who has signed roaming or other type of agreement with Telia for accessing Telia network.
Only operational terminal device that meets ETSI GSM specifications can access the user interface. Such terminal device must enable IMEI validation and user identification (transmission of A-number or CLI). Terminal device with IMEI listed in Telia's banned equipment registry enables only calls to the emergency number 112.
Connection between a terminal device and the interface is guaranteed in a geographical point of the coverage area of Telia network. Coverage area is an area where strength of the radio signal is adequate to receive the signal with a terminal device that meets the specifications of communication standards.
