Singtel to achieve nationwide 4G LTE-900 deployment by March

Download speeds will exceed 300 Mbps.

Singtel and Swedish tech giant Ericsson will finish the national roll-out of a 4G LTE network on 900MHz spectrum band by end March 2016, the two companies said in a joint statement.

The deployment leverages low-band LTE frequency, or the LTE-900, to boost existing connections. This enhancement means that users will experience deeper 4G indoor coverage with wider and more consistent network performance, the release said.

Additionally, the upgrade will also allow Singtel to offer nationwide 3CC (Cell Carrier) Carrier Aggregation technology, which will result in one of the fastest peak mobile throughputs in Singapore with download speeds of more than 300Mbps.

“Singapore has always been an innovation test bed for the Group. This LTE-900 boost is part of our ongoing network investments to deliver an unrivalled 4G LTE experience,” said Tay Yeow Lian, Managing Director of Networks, Consumer Singapore.
