Movistar to start LTE-A network tests - report

Thursday 2 January 2014 | 15:02 CET | News
Spanish operator Movistar plans to start testing LTE-Advanced in January, reports Cinco Dias. The paper's sources said the operator has already conducted lab tests and will move to network tests in 2014. The company will build on its experience with LTE-A in Germany, where it's working with Huawei. This makes Movistar the second operator in Spain to test the new technology, after Vodafone started a trial in December.
