Everything Everywhere and BT Wholesale extend 4G trial in Cornwall

Everything Everywhere and BT Wholesale have announced an extension to their trial of 4G LTE mobile broadband in Cornwall.

The trial, which has been running in the area around St. Newlyn East in Cornwall since October 2011, has been given Ofcom approval to continue until the end of June 2012. It’s currently delivering average download speeds of 7 Mbps.

Nigel Stagg, CEO of BT Wholesale, said “This trial is enabling us to see at first hand the real difference LTE  is making in rural Cornwall and how it could provide an alternative mode of delivery in rural areas to complement fibre delivered broadband.  There’s no doubt that fixed line solutions offer a faster and more reliable broadband service, but there isn’t a single silver bullet to meet the rural broadband challenge. We continue to also assess other potential solutions including other mobile and wireless technologies.”

The trial is being implemented with support from Nokia Siemens Networks and Huawei.
