20 Aug 2018

Moroccan telecoms company Inwi has upgraded its 4G LTE network to enable maximum download speeds of 1Gbps, reports TIC Maroc. The operator, which is the country’s third-largest by subscribers, enlisted equipment vendor Huawei to implement 4×4 MIMO technology on the mobile broadband network. ‘In concrete terms, this is a pre-5G solution that offers very high speed that can reach more than 1Gbps. It is a giant step towards the next transition of the Inwi network to 5G that will allow individuals and businesses to enjoy a flow equivalent to optical fibre with the flexibility of mobility,’ commented the operator’s Director of Planning and Performance, Fadoua Bettioui Laroussi.
