Peruvian telco Olo, which has been owned by Claro Peru since August 2016, has announced that it has begun deployment of time division duplex (TD)-LTE, reports El Comercio. The new technology is already being rolled out in Lima and Callao, and is expected to reach several new provinces by the end of 2017. CEO of Olo Peru, Eli Sondon stated that its existing WiMAX network will operate simultaneously with the new TD-LTE service for a limited period of time to allow the migration to TD-LTE to take place, whereby its WiMAX capabilities will eventually be phased out. ‘The adoption of new uses of the internet is driving an enormous increase in data traffic, so operators must constantly invest in the renewal of our infrastructure and equipment to make them more robust and improve the capacity,’ he said.
