10 LTE usage in the 900/1800 MHz Offers a cost effective opportunity of introducing LTE services in areas covered by 900 MHz networks The cost savings originate from the significantly larger cell size of 900 MHz networks compared to higher frequency bands networks There is no doubt that refarming of 900 and 1800 MHz bands to LTE should be allowed, but the point in time when this refarming should take place has to be considered
