Australian incumbent takes another step towards 300 Mbps LTE-Advanced. Telstra has taken another step towards 300 Mbps mobile broadband after successfully testing the interoperability of Category 6 (CAT6) kit from different vendors.

“We are pleased to see 300 Mbps achieved and we’re excited about the superior broadband experience this will enable,” said Håkan Eriksson, CEO of Ericsson’s Australia and New Zealand business, in a statement last week. “With the introduction of Category 6, adoption of LTE-Advanced is expected to accelerate, with a key factor being the availability of commercial infrastructure and global chipsets for smartphones.”

The test used Ericsson software and Qualcomm’s latest multimode modem. Ericsson hailed it as a world first because it involved kit supplied from different vendors. Original Post at Total Telecom
