Paratus moves first customers to new TD-LTE network

Thursday 11 October 2018 | 12:03 CET | News
Paratus has started rolling out its TD-LTE network in Nambia in parallel to its current Wimax network. TD-LTE technology provides better spectral efficiency, higher speed throughput as well as better radio coverage than Wimax, the company said. The Communication Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) has provided much needed relief in the form of temporary spectrum to maintain client service uptime during the transition process to the new TD-LTE network.
