Ecuador's Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CNT) has deployed the country's first LTE network with coverage initially available in the cities of Guayaquil, Cuenca, Machala and Loja, as well as most of the major cities in Ecuador's Pacific Coast and Southern area.
The network infrastructure was supplied by Alcatel-Lucent.
The deployment follows a trial in Amazonas and Estadio areas of Quito conducted earlier this year by Alcatel-Lucent and CNT.
CNT was formed in October 2008, as a result of the merger of the now disappeared Andinatel and Pacifictel companies. It is now listed on the local stock exchange.
