МТS AND ERICSSON BOOST 3G NETWORK SPEED UP TO 4G

четверг, апреля 07, 2016

MTS and Ericsson, the world leader in the field of ICT, announce the successful testing of three-frequency band aggregation in an existing commercial 3G network operating in Ufa (The Republic of Bashkortostan).  During testing, peak data transfer rate increased by one-third – up to 63 Mbit/sec, which is comparable with 4G speeds.

The aggregation of three 5 MHz band carrier frequencies was conducted in the 2.1 GHz band with data being transferred by one stream to a single mobile device, which supports HSDPA Multi-Carrier 3 Carriers technology.

Today, more than 90% of MTS 3G base stations work on DC-HSDPA+ technology, which utilizes dual-carrier bands and provides peak rates of 42 Mbit/sec. Nevertheless, 64% of DC-HSPDA+ base stations in 83 regions of Russia are enabled with third frequency carrier capabilities, which may be used to increase the capacity of the network by one-third or to increase access rates up to 63 Mbit/sec.

Around 68% of MTS total data traffic is 3G, so the Company continues to upgrade its 3G networks. Since 2014, MTS has enabled tri-carrier frequency on base stations in different regions of Russia. The steady growth of access speed of 3G base stations from 42 Mbit/sec to 63 Mbit/sec demonstrates that the technical specs come close to those of 4G networks. That is why with new mobile terminals appearing on the market MTS plans to use tri-band carrier aggregation to increase speed and use 3G frequencies more efficiently.

MTS CITED AS FASTEST GROWING INTERNET PROVIDER IN RUSSIA

вторник, февраля 16, 2016

Vedomosti reports today that according to a report by TMT Consulting, MTS was the fastest growing Internet provider in Russia in 2015. The report suggests that MTS increased its customer base of high-speed internet users by 7% year-over-year to 2.8 mln customers. Overall in Russia, the number of customers connected to high-speed internet rose 3.6% versus 5% in 2014.

Key drivers for MTS’s market-leading growth include the modernization of its regional networks, which allowed MTS to expand its base by upselling its customers, many of whom use analogue pay-TV solutions, FTTB (Fiber-to-the-Building) high-speed internet solutions. In 2015, MTS also completed its GPON project in Moscow, which allows its subsidiary, MGTS, to offer speeds of up to 1 GB/s to its customers.
