ZTE to build LTE Phase II project for Algeria Telecom

ZTE has signed a deal to build Algeria Telecom’s LTE Phase II project. The deal follows on from the LTE Phase I project, which ZTE also undertook on behalf of Algeria Telecom. The first purchase order for Phase II covers 14 wilayas in the north east region of the country.

Algeria Telecom is the only public fixed communications operator in Algeria, and the main provider of broadband in the country. Algeria is the second country which commercially launched LTE in Africa, having launched the Phase I project in April 2014. Following this, Algeria Telecom began plans to build its Phase II project.

The Algerian government gave high priority to the building of fixed broadband and wireless broadband, with the LTE project one of the main elements of its national broadband strategy. The deployment of LTE Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) aims to help both families and businesses to enjoy the benefits of a fixed broadband service.
