qb boosts network speed

Mobile operator qb claims to have increased its network nationwide to “3.75G” speeds, and is looking to introduce 2G service, according to chief executive officer Alan Sinfield.

“We’re looking to improve our footprint by providing quality data and voice on a national level,” he said yesterday.

The company has increased its network’s speeds to 14.4 megabits per second after a previous run at 7.2 megabits per second, he said.

Sinfield did not reveal the cost of the upgrade, but said it involved “a fair amount of investment.”

The project had been completed last month, and involved upgrading software and improving backhaul connections.

The faster speeds were available on its network – including in the capital as well as cities such as Battambang and Siem Reap and along major roads, he said.

The firm presently holds a 3G licence but no 2G licence, according to a Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications presentation from last month.

Sinfield said qb was looking at ways to provide 2G services as well.

“We’re working on a number of scenarios to provide 2G to our subscribers,” he said yesterday, while not elaborating further.
