Base passes 250 Mbps with LTE Advanced field test

Friday 28 February 2014 | 15:14 CET | News
Belgian mobile operator Base said it has successfully performed a LTE Advanced field test, with speeds passing 250 Mbps. The field test took place in Hasselt, together with network provider ZTE, using a 2x2 Mhz carier aggregator combined with MiMo 2x2 technology for speeds of up to 300 Mbps. ZTE became the exclusive 3G and 4G radio supplier for Base in 2012. CEO Jos Donvil said LTE Advanced was the logical step after rolling out LTE/4G. The operator currently provides 4G coverage in 400 cities and municipalities, reaching 4 million people.
