Gomonews.com reports that Telecom Italia has commenced a pre-commercial LTE trial in Turin. The cellco, partnering with Huawei, is using 14 new radio stations integrated into its existing infrastructure. Telecom Italia has traditionally been keen to embrace next generation technologies: in June of this year it launched HSPA+ services in Milan, allowing theoretical downlink speeds of up to 28Mbps.
