Ericsson to Provide MTS with HSPA+ Overlay

November 10, 2009

Ericsson today announced that it will provide Manitoba-based MTS Allstream a unique network solution to overlay its existing CDMA╣ mobile network with HSPA+▓ technology. HSPA+ boosts network capacity and enables data rates of up to 21 Mbps which will significantly improve users' mobile broadband experience and increase data speeds across MTS Allstream's entire CDMA network.

In conjunction with the previously announced shared network and roaming agreement between MTS Allstream and Rogers, the technology overlay will give MTS Allstream's customers improved access speeds as well as act as the foundation for MTS Allstream's future technology plans.

With much faster connection speeds, MTS Allstream's customers will now be able to access robust applications on the most expansive HSPA+ network in Manitoba, giving them the freedom to work and play whether they are in the middle of the city or at the cottage.
