T-Mobile tests LTE-Advanced technology in Vienna

18 Dec 2012

According to an unconfirmed report by Austrian website Elektro, T-Mobile Austria has staged tests of the Long Term Evolution (LTE)-Advanced standard in cooperation with Huawei. The tests, which ‘merged’ frequencies in the 1800MHz and 2600MHz spectrum bands through so-called ‘carrier aggregation’, reportedly achieved a live data transmission speed of 289Mbps. ‘Even though LTE in Austria is still in its infancy, we have already started early to develop new technologies,’ commented chief technical officer Rudiger Koster.
