VHA sees 5.6 Mbps uplink speeds on LTE

 

More trials to come.

Huawei has shed further light on Long Term Evolution (LTE) trials revealed by Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) yesterday.

The vendor said in a brief statement that the trials near Newcastle, north of Sydney, used 10 MHz of spectrum in the 1800 MHz band.

In addition to achieving maximum downlink speeds of 74.3 Mbps, the network also managed an "average uplink throughput of 5.6 Mbps", a spokesman said.

"Huawei and VHA are currently planning further trials of LTE," a spokesman for the vendor said.

"This is just the first step".

Telstra and Optus have been conducting separate LTE trials, achieving speeds ranging from 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps in a range of lab and live tests.

Huawei said it had been awarded 14 commercial LTE contracts and was participating in more than 60 LTE trials worldwide.

The Chinese company said it would have five LTE-capable devices commercially available next year, it said.

LTE is being eyed by carriers as the technology to deliver fourth-generation wireless internet speeds.
