Ericsson Wins Algerian LTE Network Deployment Contract

Ericsson has won a contract to deploy the first LTE and VoLTE enabled network in Northern Africa for Algrie Telecom.

The network will be a fixed-wireless based broadband internet service.

Massive demand for broadband services is putting extreme strain on Algeria’s existing copper/fiber fixed-broadband network. The initial deployment will cover “white spots” that do not currently have broadband access, before extending to high-density locations such as universities, airports and commercial districts.

Azouaou Mehmel, President and CEO of Algérie Télécom Group, says:

Our close relationship with Ericsson made it possible to roll out the LTE network in a record time, so our customers could start enjoying LTE reliable high speed broadband services. The launch of LTE is a key milestone in Algerie Telecom’s strategic plan of broadband development in Algeria”

Financial terms for the contract were not disclosed.
