MTS representative Dmitry Solodnikov announced that Apple had unblocked LTE TDD technology for iPhone in MTS network. According to his words, it will help to increase the average speed of mobile Internet on smartphones in Moscow region till 90 Mbyte/sec.
Previously, MTS networks worked only in LTE FDD mode, when acceptance and transfer of data are happening simultaneously on different frequencies, “Now our network for “heavy” content (LTE TDD) is available for users of new models of iPhone 6, 6PLUS and also 5C and 5S”.
The average mobile Internet speed is 20-30 Mbyte/sec. TDD network is more appropriate for download of “heavy” content – video, music and photo.
