UK trial of LTE mobile broadband technology using old analogue TV spectrum

Clear Mobitel Ltd says it'll carry out the UK’s first live consumer trial of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in the 800MHz 'digital dividend' spectrum. This radio frequency band was previously occupied by analogue TV transmissions until last year's digital switchover. Clear Mobitel will be assessing the potential of providing high-speed broadband services over LTE in East Cornwall.

Harpal Mann, CEO and founder of Clear Mobitel, said "This trial is one of the most important projects in the company at present. This is not just a trial of rural broadband solutions based on LTE for Cornwall, it is a trial which has global ramifications for rural economies that have been shattered by the effects of the global recession."

Last year Clear Mobitel was given permission to offer so-called '4G' LTE broadband using the 2600MHz band in Jersey.
