It said, "It is therefore not surprising that Menatelecom has announced its intention to implement LTE national fixed wireless services using its currently licensed radio frequencies. To facilitate Menatelecom s launch of LTE, TRA has provided Menatelecom with the necessary code for network management, authentication and other personalised services. This should enable Menatelecom to increase its spectrum utilization efficiency to deliver higher capacity products to its customers .
It further said that consumers and citizens should gain directly from the additional release of prime spectrum used by handset providers for the provision of mobile LTE services, while national fixed wireless consumers will also be able to practice the benefits of LTE technology in terms of quality and speed in a fixed or nomadic environment providing an additional layer of competition.
TRA will thoroughly check the roll-out and request for LTE in the kingdom to regulate if and when additional frequencies should be offered to the sector.
The statement said, "TRA believes that the introduction of state-of-the-art technologies such as LTE into the market will encourage investor confidence in the country s telecommunications infrastructure, which in turn is good for the citizen, good for the consumer and good for the kingdom .
