TeliaSonera makes 'world's first' LTE Internet connection; T-Mobile Austria demos LTE
|08 июня 2009|
European LTE has moved closer to becoming a commercial reality with the announcement from T-Mobile Austria that it has installed an LTE base station and is showcasing its high-speed capabilities of over 130Mbps. To further boost the case for LTE, TeliaSonera claims to have achieved a "world's first" by making a broadband Internet connection over a live commercial LTE network in Oslo, Norway.
The demonstration of LTE by T-Mobile Austria is using equipment from Huawei, and according to the Austrian company's CTO, Jim Burke, is the first time a speed of more than 130Mbps over the air interface has been reached, with four modems simultaneously active in a cell. The operator used the launch of this demo to call for the Austrian government to consider the distribution of 2.6GHz frequencies, so it can prepare to launch the technology on a commercial basis.
In Norway, the TeliaSonera subsidiary, NetCom, used a laptop with a 4G modem to demonstrate the performance and connection capabilities of LTE by downloading high-res photos, music, movies and mobile business applications, at a speed quicker than is available over today's fixed Internet. However, no details were supplied by NetCom with regard to actual LTE throughput, although the connection was made using Huawei technology.
