Claro to launch fixed-wireless TD-LTE service

3 Jul 2015

Claro Peru has unveiled plans to use Time Division Long Term Evolution (TD-LTE) technology to provide broadband in remote areas, where fixed connections are not feasible. Gestion writes that the operator plans to launch the fixed-wireless service in H2 2015, to provide high speed broadband services in areas unserved by fixed infrastructure and where the deployment of fixed networks is difficult, either due to the geographical conditions or municipal and administrative obstacles. Robert Bellido, the Mexican-backed cellco’s deputy director of residential market, said that the offering will complement the coverage of fixed services and will allow more people the opportunity to benefit from telecom services.
