MTN has launched its LTE-Advanced services in South Africa, with Camps Bay, Moreleta Park, and the Gautrain station in Rosebank the first sites to receive the service.

“LTE-A offers MTN’s customers a cutting-edge network experience that is robust – it packs more speed into the same amount of spectrum,” said MTN.

MTN said a “lack of critical high-value spectrum” has forced it to re-farm existing spectrum to cater for the roll-out of new networks such as LTE-A.

“LTE-A is still relatively new and thus only a few high-end devices are compatible with this network. Many older smart devices support LTE,” said MTN.

“MTN wishes to encourage its customers to establish if LTE is activated on their devices as this will enable them to get better speeds.”

“In addition, activating LTE on a smartphone also helps to move from 3G to LTE – thus helping to create a more seamless network experience.”
