MTN SAfrica, Huawei trial 4.5G 1Gbps network

Wednesday 18 May 2016 | 16:36 CET | News
MTN said it has achieved the fastest indoor mobile data service in South Africa using LTE-Advanced technology. The service is able to provide customers with data speeds of up to 1 Gbps, the first Gigabit per second speed ever recorded in South Africa using a mobile broadband connection. MTN's LTE-Advanced solution uses Huawei's latest small cell Lampsite product, which aggregates two unlicensed LTE 5GHz carriers (40MHz) with one licensed LTE 2100MHz carrier (15MHz), and combines this with next generation MIMO and modulation schemes.
