We are pleased to announce the Launch and Introduction of Our Superior 4G Plus Network in Samoa. This is by far the leading milestone and largest investment in Bluesky history since 2011. We are proud to bring to you the latest technology and be the first to introduce 4G Plus to Samoa on Tuesday 7th March 2017.
4G Plus or LTE-advance is the technology we are introducing which is the next generation of 4G or LTE. And to be the first to bring this technology to Samoa is something we are really proud of. In an ideal scenario our network could deliver more than 100mbps download and 40mbps upload. These naturally depend on many factors such as spectrum availability, and handsets the customer uses. We have conducted internal tests and the test results are mind blowing.
So what is 4G Plus? 4G Plus is another name given to the 4th Generation of mobile networks. 4G Plus (LTE-Advanced) is the new term for the enhancement of our 4G network, which allows 4G handsets to receive data from multiple bands. 4G Plus operates on two bands i.e. 1800MHz and 700MHz for a superior connection – something Samoa has never had before.
4G Plus is designed to enable a further step change in data rates. Incorporating higher order MIMO (2×2 and beyond) and allowing carrier aggregation into a single stream, 4G Plus’ target is to achieve peak data rates of 1 billion of bits per second.
We have forty 4G sites live today and this means that we will cover more than 50% of Samoa’s population with 4G coverage. The more important fact is that 50% of our 4G coverage will have 4G Plus. Our coverage areas will span from
