Monegasque milestone: cellco inks LTE deal with Huawei

17 Apr 2013

Monaco Telecom has announced that it has enlisted Chinese telecoms vendor Huawei to supply the network infrastructure for its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. The upgrade is expected to offer speeds five times faster than those provided by the company’s existing 3G network, and LTE services are expected to be commercially available from September this year. Further, by end-2013 Monaco Telecom subscribers are expected to benefit from an LTE roaming agreement with Orange France covering its neighbouring country. CEO Martin Peronnet commented: ‘The launch of our new mobile network with Huawei is a milestone for Monaco Telecom’.
