DoCoMo Pacific launches LTE on Guam

4 Oct 2012

DoCoMo Pacific, a subsidiary of Japanese telecoms company NTT DoCoMo, has announced the launch of 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband services in Guam. Coverage of the firm’s 4G network, which operates in the 700MHz band, is supplemented by HSPA+ technology, deployed across the island in November 2011, thereby assuring customers faster speeds throughout Guam as they move in and out of LTE areas.

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database states that IT&E launched what it claimed to be Guam’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network in July 2012, following an initial investment of USD8 million. The service provides maximum download speeds of up to 20Mbps and is available on 90% of the island ‘from Yigo to Agat’.
