World-s first commercial LTE-Advanced call on 1800MHz and 900MHz

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN — (Marketwired) — 08/12/13 —

* Telstra and Ericsson make the world-s first call on combined 1800MHz
and 900MHz spectrum bands on commercial network

* 1800MHz and 900MHz spectrum bands are readily available to operators as
they move subscribers from 2G to 3G and 4G technologies.

* Ericsson uses LTE-Advanced technology to help operators match their
spectrum assets while enabling higher data speeds

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) (OMX: ERIC) today has announced that Australia-s
leading telecommunications provider Telstra is the first to use the LTE-
(LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation technology on 1800MHz and 900MHz spectrum bands
on a commercial network. This took place on July 31, when Telstra
transferred data across its live network on a number of sites in Queensland
(Australia) carrying commercial traffic.

LTE Carrier Aggregation is the next step in the evolution of
high-speed mobile broadband services, enabling operators to make the most
of their existing spectrum assets by combining multiple spectrum bands to
enable higher mobile broadband download speeds.

Mike Wright, Executive Director Networks, Telstra, says: “Telstra-s LTE
subscriber numbers are growing dramatically, with nearly 3 million
subscribers currently using the LTE network, up from 2.1 million six months
ago. The capacity, higher data speeds and efficiencies provided by
LTE-Advanced will help manage growth in data traffic as more customers
choose our network. This will allow us to continue providing additional
capacity and high-quality service, and we look forward to working with
Ericsson to make this happen.”

“When we get access to 700MHz spectrum in 2015 we also intend to deploy the
next-generation of
LTE-Advanced by combining larger blocks of spectrum in the 700MHz and
1800MHz bands to deliver blistering peak speeds in the theoretical range of

HÃ¥kan Eriksson, Head of Ericsson Australia, New Zealand and Fiji,
says: “Across the region and the globe, many operators have spectrum
available in the 1800MHz and 900MHz bands as they migrate subscribers from
2G to 3G or 4G. Many operators will be watching the Australian deployment
LTE-Advanced on these spectrum bands.”

Ericsson is supporting the deployment of
LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation on other spectrum bands in other countries
such as South Korea. On July 18, for instance, Ericsson supported LG U+ in
South Korea to commercially launch
LTE-Advanced using both 2100MHz and 850MHz bands.
