Alcatel-Lucent and CNT deploy Ecuador’s first 4G LTE ultra-broadband network
Alcatel-Lucentand Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CNT) deploy the first 4G LTE high-speed mobile broadband network in Ecuador, covering the cities of Guayaquil, Cuenca, Machala and Loja, as well as most of the major cities in the country’s Pacific Coast and Southern area.
The new network will provide the increased capacity of high-speed mobile broadband to enable a range of services and application over mobile devices at download speeds of up to 100 Mbps and upload speeds of 40 Mbps. These speeds will enable CNT to offer enhanced fixed, mobile and convergent services, such as high definition video streaming to a wide range of customers in Ecuador.
Carlos Pena, Andean region leader, Alcatel-Lucent said: “Our agreement with CNT is a prime example of how Alcatel-Lucent’s solutions address our customer needs. CNT trusted us to enable them to be the first service provider in Ecuador to offer 4G LTE service, providing ultra-broadband connectivity and a wide range of applications throughout the country and particularly in underserved and unserved areas.
Cesar Regalado, general manager, CNT said: “CNT demonstrates its leadership in deploying 4G LTE, as well as integrating fixed, mobile and convergent services. CNT is committed to increasingly improve its coverage and the quality of connectivity, offering the highest standards of service, investing in new technology platforms and extending its telecommunications networks. Bringing high-speed mobile broadband to its customers is part of that commitment.”
