LTE, advertised as 4G, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. As soon as WiMAX operators bring LTE service, consumers will like receiving data at a more rapidly rate than WiMAX.
BTRC gave the consent previous week, which made Banglalion the second operator after Qubee to launch LTE in
The Banglion subscribers will have to change their modems to get LTE service, which will be faster than WiMAX service.
The regulator s approval was received by the Qubee s LTE in previous month.
At present, Banglalion has 183,980 subscribers while Qubee has 131,317 subscribers, showed BTRC data as of August.
Earlier, Banglalion was denied LTE approval last year.
Moreover, the regulator provided LTE permission to the mobile phone operators who got 3G broadband licence, although they are not expected to go into LTE launch in a short time.
BTRC chief said, We also provided LTE permission to the mobile phone operators having 3G licence. But they are probably not going to bring the service to the customers so quickly .
In the meantime, Ollo, a co-branded operator with no WiMax licence, has at present imported LTE equipmentand installed it in different base transceiver stations, even though it has no NOC from BTRC for the LTE equipment.
