Orange Reunion unveils HSPA+, DC-HSPA+

10 Dec 2013

Orange Reunion has announced that it has launched 3.5G HSPA+ services in the French overseas department, and will offer coverage to around 75% of the country’s population at launch. The mobile operator also notes that its new network supports downlink transmission speeds of up to 42Mbps, suggesting the simultaneous deployment of dual-carrier (DC)-HSPA+ technology. Going forward, Orange has revealed that the network will be extended to 90% of the population in 2014.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Orange’s chief rival, Societe Reunionnaise de Radiotelephone (SRR), inaugurated its own DC-HSPA+ network in August 2013, also covering 75% of the population at launch. In the wireless sector the duo compete with a third player, Altice Group-backed Outremer Telecom.
