Dhiraagu Launches LTE-Advanced Service in Maldives
Maldives telecommunications service provider, Dhiraagu has commercially launched the LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology in country. Dhiraagu customers must ensure that their handsets have LTE Cat6 support with Carrier Aggregation feature using the band 3 (1800MHz) and band 7 (2600Mhz). On this network, customers will get uplink speeds up to 50 Mbps for mobile broadband. As this is a new technology, there are very few LTE-A supported handsets currently available in the market.
LTE-Advanced is the next iteration of the Long Term Evolution Standard and can offer speeds up to 300Mbps and it is has far more features than just speed. At the official unveiling ceremony of the superior 4G LTE network in 2014, Dhiraagu also demonstrated this cutting-edge 4G LTE-Advanced technology, for the first time in Maldives.
