The broadband high-speed wireless reach Galicia in the first phase of the hand of the local operator R. The company has launched with Alcatel-Lucent technology pilot project with LTE (Long Term Evolution) prior to its commercial launch.
One of the first 4G connections that will hit the market by R.

Thanks to the new mobile network hopes to advance to face to solve the ” digital divide “that exists in parts of the community. For now expected to assess the ability of this technology in urban and semi-rural, but certainly is a suitable long-term option in the face of the entire population can access the Internet at high speed.
