CNT’s LTE Network in Deployment

Ecuadorian government-owned fixed, mobile and broadband operator Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CNT) has deployed LTE mobile broadband network infrastructure, according to local news agency Andes, although a commercial launch date is yet to be announced.

 Ecuador’s telecoms regulator Conatel awarded CNT spectrum suitable for the provision of LTE services in December 2012, including 30MHz in the 700MHz band and 40MHz in the 2100MHz/1700MHz AWS band, setting it up to become the first LTE operator in the country, with private sector cellcos Movistar and Claro yet to be issued 4G concessions.
