Telkom' Initial LTE-A Roll-out

South Africa's telecommunications provider Telkom plans to begin the roll-out of its LTE Advanced (LTE-A) connectivity, in more than 50 suburbs across South Africa, by the end of this year.

Telkom has started its LTE-A deployments and is currently upgrading its network to offer customers peak speeds of over 200 Mbps, with a view to developing its network to ultimately deliver LTE-A peak speeds of 3Gbps.

Operator's LTE-A platform runs on the 2.3GHz spectrum. Telkom anticipates the initial roll-out to be complete by March 2015. The precise LTE-A product offerings and prices are still to be announced.

The initial LTE-A roll-out will enable peak connectivity speeds of over 200Mbps to selected suburbs identified in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape.
