Ericsson will soon be a major provider of the very first LTE and VoLTE enables network in Algeria as it has announced that it has won a contract to deploy the network. The company will work together with Alg rie Telecom to make this possible.
The network will be a fixed-wireless based broadband internet service.
The Algerian environment is quite something when it comes to the landscape and it will definitely make that cost of installation of the fibre challenging and expensive. LTE provides a solution for providing high-speed broadband to subscribers beyond the reach of fiber.
“Our close relationship with Ericsson made it possible to roll out the LTE network in a record time, so our customers could start enjoying LTE reliable high speed broadband services. The launch of LTE is a key milestone in Algerie Telecom’s strategic plan of broadband development in Algeria,” said Azouaou Mehmel, President and CEO of Algérie Télécom Group.
The demand for broadband services is putting extreme strain on Algeria’s existing copper/fiber fixed-broadband network. The initial deployment will cover “white spots” that do not currently have broadband access, before extending to high-density locations such as universities, airports and commercial districts.
