Vodafone Spain trialling DSL/4G bonding

25 Sep 2014

Vodafone Spain has announced that, in collaboration with Huawei, it is trialling a combined fixed and mobile broadband solution which utilises xDSL and 4G LTE technologies. In announcing the development via its website, Vodafone Spain noted that the solution, which it refers to as ‘DSL/4G bonding’, is made possible with the use of Huawei’s ARR169 or AR1220W router, which adjusts speeds based on congestion on either the fixed or mobile network, while also allowing for continued service should one of the two connection types be cut off for any reason. With the service offering download/upload speeds of up to 200Mbps/60Mbps, it is initially available to business customers only.

Alongside revealing the new service, Vodafone Spain confirmed that its 4G network now reaches more than 619 municipalities, including 80 cities with a population of more than 70,000, all of the country’s provincial capitals, and the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla. By the end of this year the operator aims to have coverage of all cities with more than 25,000 inhabitants, it said.
