Hong Kong's CSL Shows Dual Cell HSPA+/LTE

Hong Kong's CSL Limited announced plans to become the first carrier to simultaneously deploy DC HPSA+ (42 Mbps)/LTE technologies on an entire network.

CSL currently operates a GSM / WCDMA and UMTS 900 network in Hong Kong. In July 2010, CSL and ZTE announced the deployment of the world's first commercial 1800 MHz/2600 MHz dual-band LTE network and the upgrade of the 3G network to the Dual Cell technology with peak speeds of 42Mbps. The dual-band LTE network will take advantage of CSL's spectrum position to provide customers with better coverage and enhanced penetration.

CSL also demonstrated live LTE service with pre-commercial USB modems at this week's LTE Asia 2010 Conference.

  • CSL is a subsidiary of Telstra.
