China Unicom, Telecom Extend Hybrid LTE Trials

Comments Off on China Unicom, Telecom Extend Hybrid LTE Trials 17

China Unicom and China Telecom are set to expand their 4G trials to an additional 15 cities, a move which will see the companies’ hybrid FDD/TDD LTE network reach 56 cities across the country.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) yesterday approved the expansion plans, giving the two mobile operators a bigger 4G footprint to compete against China Mobile, whose TD-LTE network already covers more than 300 cities with more than 570,000 TD-LTE base stations.

China Telecom will see its 4G network expand to Shaoxing, Taizhou, Changzhou, Xuzhou, Yangzhou, Yancheng, Qingdao, Tangshan, Baoding, Dalian, Zhongshan, Huizhou, Jiangmen, Wuhu and Yulin, reports

China Unicom, meanwhile, will extend its 4G coverage to Foshan, Quanzhou, Weifang, Wenzhou, Fuyang, Wuxi, Yichang, Hengyang, Guilin, Langfang, Linfen, Nanchong, Weinan, Nanyang and Nantong. Original post at Telecom Asia
