Finland has chosen to auction off spectrum in the 1800MHz band for future Long Term Evolution networks. Other European countries are looking at 2600MHz spectrum for their own LTE deployments. Finland's Ministry of Transport and Communications believes that using 1800MHz will be a better option, as it offers better penetration, wider coverage and lower cost to deploy compared to the 2600MHz spectrum. In the U.S., network operators such as AT&T and Verizon will use 700MHz to deploy LTE networks.
