MTS has become the first company in Russia and the third globally to have completed testing of Carrier Aggregation Technology over 30 MHz of bandwidth spanning the 1800 MHz and the 2600 MHz ranges. 

Carrier Aggregation Technology is a key component of LTE-Advanced and used to increase bandwidth and in turn improve network speed and performance.  The tests demonstrated how MTS can increase mobile Internet speeds using existing spectrum in multiple bandwidths up to 225 mbps. The tests were conducted  in the region of Bashkortostan on a commercially launched LTE network constructed by Ericsson. USB modems from Huawei and smartphones from Samsung, which MTS sells throughout its retail chains, were used during the tests.

Using LTE at the 1800 MHz range gives MTS a number of advantages in terms of network planning and development: it increases network penetration and coverage and allows MTS to repurpose equipment and infrastructure already utilized for GSM networks. The launch of LTE networks over the 1800 MHz range will enable Company to provide high-speed Internet access to all of the population centers in Bashkortostan with population over 2,000 people.

MTS expects to launch LTE-Advanced technologies throughout Russia to more efficiently utilize its existing spectrum and optimize its future capital expenditures.
