Nar Mobile introduces DC-HSPA+ technology

20 Mar 2015

Mobile service provider Azerfon, which operates under the ‘Nar Mobile’ banner, has increased the maximum download speeds available over its 3.5G mobile networks to 42.2Mbps, via the introduction of Dual Carrier (DC)-HSPA+ technology. The new network was switched on this week (18 March), and all mobile broadband users with compatible devices will be automatically migrated to the faster platform.

Azerfon has operated 2G GSM and 3G W-CDMA networks since March 2007 and December 2009, respectively. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, in February 2015 Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Communications and High Technologies (MCHT) awarded Azerfon a licence to offer 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, but the operator is yet to announce a launch date for such services.
