Angola's Unitel has demonstrated LTE A Carrier Aggregation technology on its network, based on equipment supplied by Ericsson.

The demonstration was made on both 1800MHz and 900MHz spectrum bands on a commercial network, using a commercial terminal, and took place on December 18, when Unitel transferred data across its live network in Luanda, Angola carrying commercial traffic.

Magnus Mchunguzi, Vice President Ericsson sub-Saharan Africa says: "This demo places Unitel on the very limited list of operators in the world to demonstrate LTE Advanced in a live network using a commercial terminal."

There was no indication of when, or even if, the mobile network will deploy the service commercially though.
