Bouygues Telecom launches LTE-A

Tuesday 17 June 2014 | 11:35 CET | News
French operator Bouygues Telecom has announced the launch of LTE-Advanced services in Lyon, Bordeaux, Grenoble, and the Paris suburbs of Vanves, Issy-les-Moulineaux, Malakoff and Rosny-sous-Bois. The operator, which calls its service 4G+, expects to be the first in France to offer LTE-A commercially. There is no extra charge to use LTE-A, which offers theoretical peak speeds of over 220 Mbps, twice as fast as LTE. Bouygues Telecom Entreprises will start selling the first 4G+ terminal, the Huawei 4G+ box, on 1 July. Bouygues Telecom will release the Bbox Nomad 4G+ hotspot for consumers in July
