Angola’s leading telecommunications provider Unitel, has successfully tested LTE Advanced (LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation of the 1800MHz and 900MHz spectrum bands on its commercial network.  The demonstration took place on December 18 in Luanda, Angola, in partnership with Ericsson.

Amilcar Safeca, Deputy CEO of Unitel, says: “Unitel is always innovating to enhance the customer experience. With the global leap toward higher data access speeds for sophisticated video and mobility services, we are enhancing our network to ensure we continually provide high-quality services to our high-demanding subscriber base. With this demo, we are well on the way to launching the most advanced mobile network in Angola and perhaps Africa in the near future. We are working with Ericsson to make this happen.”
