Belgian mobile operator Mobistar said it has completed initial network tests of LTE Advanced, achieving speeds of over 200 Mbps. The company is using a combination of 1,800 MHz band (20 MHz) and 800 MHz band (10 MHz) frequencies for the tests, which it said provides for more efficient spectrum use, higher speeds and improved indoor coverage. The tests were conducted in Mechelen from January to April, using a prototype Cat 6 device from Huawei. With the aggregation of 1,800 and 800 MHz band spectrum, the operator achieved speeds of 213 Mbps download and 41 Mbps upload. Mobistar said it plans to launch the 4G+ services once commercial devices are available.
