Monday 9 July 2018 | 11:33 CET | News
Colombian pay-TV operator DirecTV is preparing to launch a home broadband service using LTE Advanced technology, reports local daily El Tiempo, citing the company's CEO Jose Daniel Gomez. The company currently offers a fixed internet service at speeds of up to 10Mbps from COP 45,900 (around USD 16) a month but the new 4.5G-based service will up the speed to 20Mbps, said Gomez. He added that DirecTV is currently replacing its older towers with LTE-A technology due to user saturation and that the aim is to roll out the service in the third quarter of 2018.
