by MTHULISI SIBANDA
PRETORIA, (CAJ News) – TELKOM has announced it has expanded its LTE Advanced (LTE-A) network to an additional 22 suburbs across South Africa.
The company said the expansion adds to what is already the largest LTE-A network in the country.
The LTE-A expansion will cover areas in greater Johannesburg, the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Tshwane.
The size of Telkom’s LTE-A network is unrivalled anywhere in Africa, said Attila Vitai, Managing Director of Telkom Mobile and Consumer, adding Telkom was one of the earliest adopters of the LTE-A technology in the world and the first in South Africa.
“We have received positive feedback from our customers experiencing superfast speeds on Telkom’s LTE-A network. Expanding our network is key to our mission of delivering world-class products and services to our customers,” Vitai said.
“Telkom is on a journey to deliver super-fast broadband on both wireless and fixed lines to cater for the specific needs and requirements of our customers. We have geared ourselves up to be as responsive as possible to what our customers want, be it VDSL, Fibre or LTE-A.”
Telkom started its LTE-A journey in September when it upgraded its network and was able to demonstrate peak speeds of over 380 Mbps at the MyBroadband Conference in October 2014.
