UK based Hutchison 3G UK has outlined plans to deploy a lower radio spectrum frequency later this year to boost its network coverage. The company acquired 2x5Mhz of 800Mhz spectrum in an auction in February 2013, but has been focused on using its 1800Mhz spectrum for LTE services so far.
The company added that it will also launch Voice over LTE (or VoLTE) services.
Bryn Jones, Three’s Chief Technical Officer, said: “Our aim is to keep our customers connected wherever they are. Adding low frequency spectrum to our network and enabling voice calls over 4G and Wi-Fi, will mean Three customers can stay connected in more places than ever before.”
Three has also announced that over 1 million customers have downloaded and activated the Three InTouch app benefitting from the ability to call and text over Wi-Fi.
