Belgian operator Telenet announced that it achieved speeds of 1.3 Gbps in an outdoor demonstration of 4.5G technology from ZTE. That's four times the maximum speed of the current 4G technology. Telenet claimed a first in Europe to achieve such speeds in real-life conditions. The 4.5G system uses 4x4 MIMO beaming, tri-carrier aggregation and QAM 256 modulation. The demo was one of the first steps in Telenet's long-term partnership with ZTE to upgrade the Base mobile network.
