The Eagle has landed: Albanian operator unveils LTE launch

3 Sep 2015

Albtelecom’s Eagle Mobile unit has confirmed the commercial launch of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, which went live on Tuesday 1 September – the deadline previously set out by the Authority of Electronic and Postal Communications (AKEP). The telco has noted that the 4G cell sites are connected via a fibre-optic backhaul network, and claims that the new infrastructure is capable of providing data transmission speeds more than six times faster than those offered by its legacy 3G network.
