Movistar activates first LTE sites in Argentina - report

Friday 23 January 2015 | 11:41 CET | News
Movistar Argentina has activated a total of 50 LTE-4G base stations in the centre of Buenos Aires, reports local daily Clarin. Company sources said the network is already operational and that they accelerated the deployment to improve the service and decongest 3G networks. They also announced that 200,000 customers who already have 4G-enabled devices will shortly be sent the new chips that are needed to use the service. Movistar is the first Argentine operator to launch 4G services and is expected to be followed shortly by the operators Personal and Claro.
