BT to live trial new wireless broadband

EVERYTHING Everywhere and BT Wholesale yesterday announced the first live trial of 4G LTE broadband.

The project in Cornwall will use BT’s infrastructure and Everything Everywhere’s mobile network to provide superfast broadband to 700 rural premises.

The firm says the trial will be used to test the performance of a 4G LTE network outside lab conditions. Everything Everywhere chief executive Tom Alexander said the technology could be used to help the government meet its target of having the best broadband network in Europe by 2015.
