Orange, Cellnex to debut 4G small cell network in Barcelona

Friday 19 February 2016 | 15:09 CET | News
Orange Spain is teaming up with Cellnex Telecom and Barcelona city council to deploy a 4G small cell network in the centre of the Catalan capital just a few days before the start of the Mobile World Congress. The project will see a new generation of small cells from Ericsson installed in lamposts in the vicinity of Barcelona's Placa de Catalunya to increase network density and ensure mobile data speeds of around 150 Mbps. Orange said the use of small cell technology guarantees optimal urban mobile broadband coverage even in times of high concentration of users, with minimal visual impact.
