Dubai telco cites increased data traffic as reason for revision
Dubai-based telecoms provider du today announced it will expand its 4G LTE network by 25%, beyond the company's original plans for expansion in 2014.
Du doubled its 4G LTE footprint in the first three months of 2014, and is working on completing the additional expansion by the end of the year.
"Our internal analysis and monitoring of data usage patterns on our network has shown very healthy growth, in line with global trends," said Saleem Albalooshi, executive vice president, Network Development and Operations, du.
"In order to provide our customers with the best experience, we have added value to our network by increasing it beyond our original plans for 2014. This will allow customers to experience seamless 4G LTE connectivity in more areas than before, truly paving the way for the fulfilment of both the Smart Government and Smart City initiatives."
