MobinNet launches TD-LTE

3 Feb 2017

Iranian ISP MobinNet has launched its first services using time division duplex LTE (TD-LTE) technology. The firm has migrated its 3.5GHz WiMAX networks in four cities – Tehran, Karaj, Mashhad and Kish – to TD-LTE, bringing improved data speeds for both consumer and business customers. A report from The Financial Tribune says that MobinNet plans to have TD-LTE systems live in eleven cities by the end of the Iranian financial year in March. Rival operator MTN Irancell launched its own TD-LTE networks in parts of 25 provinces in August 2016, having followed a similar migration path from 3.5GHz WiMAX.
