Using equipment from Huawei, Vodafone Italy has reportedly notched up downlink transmission speeds of 253.4Mbps in a Naples-based LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) trial. The mobile giant noted that the ‘experimental’ LTE-A network – which used the 1800MHz and 2600MHz spectrum bands – could be made available on a commercial basis as early as 2015, when the first compatible smartphones are expected to hit the Italian market.
