“We have pioneered 4G in the UK, and we are now working with NSN on the next stage of our rollout, covering the next 25% of the UK population in rural areas and small towns. This partnership highlights our approach to maintaining a differentiated 4G network experience. We will continue to lead our UK competitors in speed, coverage, and reliability,” said EE CEO Olaf Swantee.
“We have selected NSN because of their technology, their people, and because of their ability to provide a high quality end-to-end services model. We look forward to working together as we continue to give people across the UK access to the biggest and fastest 4G mobile network.”
In a world’s first, NSN and Korean operators, Korea Telecom (KT) and SK Telecom (SKT) have successfully demoed TDD-FDD carrier aggregation. This breakthrough will enable significantly improved network capacity, high-capacity coverage and speed.
- Innovation will allow operators to improve LTE mobile broadband speed and boost TD-LTE coverage by 50-100%
- Uses TDD, FDD spectrum optimally to save costs for operators
