1. A method by a User Equipment (UE) configured for operation in a telecommunication network, the method comprising:
initiating a random access procedure towards a first radio access node of the telecommunication network by transmitting a random access preamble targeting the first radio access node;
deciding to continue the random access procedure with a different, second radio access node; and
continuing the random access procedure with the second radio access node by transmitting a connection request message based on an identifier indicated in a random access response received from the second radio access node.
