Qualcomm joins the crowd demanding early 4G rollout
Qualcomm, the American global communications equipment corporation and the world leader in 3G and next generation mobile technologies, has also joined the crowd that demands the 4G mobile broadband rollout in the UK.
The vice president of Qualcomm’s software strategy and the president of the Internet Service, Rob Chandhock voiced his opinion at the yearly Uplinq Developer’s Conference in San Diego, California that he is very optimistic about the UK’s mobile market. He said that the firm considers the market in the UK as very valuable and wanted his customers to sell as many types of equipment as possible around the UK market as he could foresee the 4G LTE deployment in the very near future.
XLN, the UK’s largest independent provider of telecom services to small businesses in the UK has recently reported that UK’s first 4G trial conducted by Everything Everywhere last month in Cumbria has become a grand success. Everything Everywhere was able to launch the 4G rollout in the UK well ahead of other rival providers since the telecoms regulator in the UK, Ofcom has allowed Everything Everywhere to refarm its license for the rollout of 4 G broadband. It is generally expected that by 2013, across the UK, 4G broadband would be widely available but at the same time there is also a concern that there would be some disruptions for TV receptions.
