M1 goes live with commercial LTE network

17 Sep 2012

As planned, Singaporean mobile operator M1 Limited (M1) has launched its nationwide commercial Long Term Evolution (LTE) service in Singapore, in collaboration with network partner Huawei. Having inaugurated its 4G network in the city-state’s financial district in June 2011, the carrier has now expanded the LTE service countrywide to take advantage of the population’s appetite for mobile data and smartphones. Working with the Chinese vendor, M1 has launched the nationwide service using Huawei’s end-to-end single RAN LTE/EPC solution, which supports dual-band 1800MHz/2600MHz LTE, to maximise the cellco’s spectrum assets.
