Singapore based SingTel says that it is the first mobile operator in the world to offer a 4G service capable of reaching theoretical 300Mbps download speeds, with the launch of the Huawei E5786 mobile MiFi device.
This is the first mobile broadband device globally to be compatible with LTE-A networks, which can deliver ultra-fast data speeds of up to 300Mbps.
Mr Johan Buse, SingTel's Vice President of Consumer Marketing, said: "With multimedia applications consuming increasingly more bandwidth, speed is everything. The launch of the Huawei E5786 enables us to bring the benefits of LTE-Advanced services to Singaporeans before anyone else in the world. At SingTel, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation to provide our customers with the very best that technology has to offer."
In addition to the Huawei E5786, other LTE-A enabled devices, including smartphones and tablets, will be available from SingTel in the coming months.
All SingTel 4G customers with compatible devices will be able to access the LTE-A service at no extra charge.
