Movistar Argentina launches LTE-A in Buenos Aires localities

Thursday 2 November 2017 | 10:37 CET | News
Movistar Argentina (Telefonica) has announced the launch of an LTE Advanced (LTE-A) service in the cities of La Plata and Mar del Plata in the Buenos Aires province following an investment of ARS 850 million. The company said the new technology allows up to 200,000 users in the two localities to connect at double the speed of the existing 4G network thanks to the aggregation of spectrum in the 700MHz and 2100MHz/1700MHz AWS bands. In LTE-A lab tests conducted last year, the company reached speeds of up to 288 Mbps.
