South African operator Cell C has launched commercial LTE-Advanced services. Cell C switched on LTE-A at sites in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town using paired spectrum in the 1.8GHz and 2.1GHz bands. The faster services of up to 100 Mbps work over category 6 handsets such as the Samsung Note 5, Samsung S6 Edge, Apple iPhone 6S, Huawei Mate 8 and LG G5. The roll-out of LTE-A in KwaZulu-Natal is set to commence in the coming months and will be completed in the third quarter of this year, said the company.
