­Today, two Polish mobile network operators, CenterNet and Mobyland, launched the first commercial long-term evolution (LTE) network in Central Europe utilising the 1800 MHz frequency band. So far, LTE networks have only been commercially launched in three other countries: in Sweden and Norway, by TeliSonera; and in Uzbekistan by both MTS and UCell (owned by TeliaSonera).

The entrance of two new mobile network operators, CenterNet and Mobyland, did not seem to drastically change the market environment.

The main strategy of both operators was to focus on exploring underpenetrated market niches.
