Vodafone Romania and Chinese equipment vendor Huawei have partnered to test a 1.35Gbps LTE connection. The technology used in the testing was a combination of 4×4 MIMO, a mix of frequency division duplex (FDD) and time division duplex (TDD) over five carrier aggregation and higher order modulation – 256 QAM.
In the press event promoting these new 4G speeds, Vodafone Romania also announced the launch of its ‘Supernet 4G+’ service, which is available in all 41 county capitals, Bucharest, as well as a further 330 localities. Andrea Rossini, Consumer Business Unit Director of Vodafone Romania stated: ‘After providing our users with advanced services through Supernet 4G, we now launch Supernet 4G+, to offer a new generation of customer experience. With Supernet 4G+ we are able to offer the best combination of technology and services to drive the new trend of consumer behaviour, which includes increasing data consumption on mobile and interactive gaming.’
