26 Jun 2013

Medellin-based operator Une-EPM has reported signing up 85,000 LTE mobile broadband subscribers a year after launching the 4G service, reports Telesemana. The Colombian municipally-owned company launched its 2.5GHz LTE network in June 2012 in Medellin and Bogota. The news site also reported that Une-EPM has introduced a converged fixed-wireless option for its LTE network users offering wireless broadband internet and voice services (with 1Mbps, 3Mbps, 5Mbps or 10Mbps speeds, unlimited data downloads, and options for unlimited local, domestic long-distance and international voice calls). The new service is available for both residential and business customers. TeleGeography notes that Une’s LTE network now covers additional cities including Cali, Bucaramanga and Barranquilla, and it intends to cover 15 cities by the end of 2013, when it forecasts roughly 300,000 subscribers.
