Singtel to offer 450 Mbps LTE speeds with Ericsson, Samsung

Tuesday 3 March 2015 | 10:03 CET | News

Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel) plans to soon deliver speeds beyond 300 Mbps for its customers, using Ericsson’s LTE-A technology to deploy a tri-band Carrier Aggregation (CA) service. Tri-band CA is a step up from the current dual-carrier LTE networks used by Singtel. The technology combines bandwidth from three of Singtel’s spectrum bands to deliver upgraded mobile data services.

The tri-band Carrier Aggregation service will be progressively deployed in Singapore over the next two years with trials beginning in the second quarter of this year. Samsung will be providing devices supporting tri-band Carrier Aggregation for the trial. New handset models supporting tri-band Carrier Aggregation are expected to be available later this year. Subscribers with this new category of handsets will have access to peak downlink speeds of up to 450 Mbps, compared to the current 300 Mbps.
