Elisa has opened Estonia's first 5G network on new frequencies

Mobile internet with higher speed and less delay will first reach home and office devices in Harju County, and by the end of the year also smartphones.

Elisa, which recently won Estonia's first 3.6 GHz 5G frequency license, has opened its first 5G network. Initially, the company will offer ultra-fast home and office internet based on its new network. Elisa will start offering 5G service for Apple and Samsung smartphones in the autumn. The operator will open its first 5G base stations precisely in those areas where the use of mobile internet is the most active

Elisa will be the first to open the service in Muraste, Vääna, Aespa and Kohila settlements in Harju County, as well as in some area of Tallinn. During the summer, Elisa plans to expand the availability of its services to 10–20 new areas every week. By the end of the year, Elisa wants to reach half of Estonian users. In the 5G coverage area, Elisa will offer both private and business customers packages with a speed of up to 500 Mbit/s with 5G outdoor routers, which will bring a new level of internet directly to the home Wi-Fi network.

Elisa's 5G network will be built on Nokia network equipment, and, along with it, the entire 4G network, which until now has been largely based on Huawei equipment, will also be upgraded. In addition to providing better 4G quality, this will also make it easier to expand the 5G network in the future.

The prices of Elisa home internet packages will depend on the speed offered. The most affordable package with 15 Mbit/s download and 5 Mbit/s upload speeds will cost 17.99 euros per month. However, the fastest package with 500 Mbit/s download and 50 Mbit/s upload speeds will cost 39.99 euros per month. These prices are very similar to the current 4G package prices, which means that the 5G revolution will not significantly increase the price of mobile data.
