LTE technology offers many benefits

CYBERJAYA: The introduction of the long-term evolution (LTE) wireless broadband technology is expected to reduce broadband access costs, widen community access, as well as make broadband devices and services more affordable to the community.

Also, “LTE will provide high throughput, low latency and improved end-user experience, and simple architecture resulting in low operating costs,” according to Information, Communications, Culture and Arts Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.

“LTE will faciliate the development of the country’s broadband communications sector.”

The minister believes that a strong commitment to LTE development will lead the country to a new era of mobile broadband.

He sees LTE as part of the supply aspect, especially in high economic impact areas, as broadband infrastructure and services are rolled out nationwide.

“Three features have also been identified to encourage demand for broadband. “They are awareness, attractiveness and affortability,” he said.

“With LTE’s high-speed Internet access and ability to improve the attractiveness of online content, the Government’s efforts will be focused on enhancing and promoting e-Government, e-Education and e-Commerce.”

Rais’ speech was read out by his deputy Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum at the launch of the Huawei LTE Technology Roadshow here yesterday.


President of LTE Network at Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Ying Wei Min said the three-day roadshow will create awareness for LTE technology.
