Chinese telecommunications technology provider Huawei has collaborated with the UK-based mobile operator EE to introduce 4G LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) network in London.
The LTE-A network will deliver broadband speeds of about 300Mbps and will be available throughout London during 2014, which is currently available in Tech City business centre.
LTE-A network enables Carrier Aggregation (CA), which increases capacity and offers wireless broadband network double speed compared to the current LTE mobile networks.
In early December 2013, EE will start an official customer test by offering mobile WiFi in offices in the Tech City area.
EE chief executive officer Olaf Swantee said the network we're switching on today in Tech City is the first part of an infrastructure that can meet the future demands of increasingly data-hungry consumers and businesses, and enable completely new ways of doing business.
"The network we're switching on today in Tech City uses the spectrum that we acquired in the Ofcom spectrum auction earlier this year, and is the first part of an infrastructure that can meet the future demands of an increasingly data-hungry nation, enabling us to stay one-step ahead of the demand."
Huawei UK chief executive officer Victor Zhang said, "Today's announcement is not only a vital step in realising the future of the UK's mobile broadband infrastructure, but it is also an important moment for Huawei's UK business."
Huawei also plans to introduce the first commercially available Mobile WiFi units for LTE-A in the second quarter of 2014 and with handsets to follow in the second half of the year.
EE will support the technology provider to offer LTE-enabled devices to its customers to take advantage of superfast services running on the 4G network.
