Adverse weather stalls 4G testing?

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Testing of 4G or Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband technology was supposed to have started at the Motorola testing facility in Swindon by now, but this technology appears to have an Achilles Heel, the UK weather.

The idea of the facility is that UK based mobile broadband providers will be able to go there and experiment with their own equipment and use the 4G technology too.

This will give them an idea of how easily it can be incorporated into their networks.

Unfortunately, it is understood that the weather conditions currently affecting the UK have affected these trials too.

There has not been any confirmation from Motorola, either one way or the other, as to the truth behind these claims.
