MobileOne (M1), the leading mobile operator in Singapore, has today successfully completed a 100 Mbps data call on its Long Term Evolution (LTE) trial network. This makes it the first South Asian operator to achieve this milestone on commercial LTE hardware and software. The call was made at M1's flagship store in Singapore, where the operator is trialing and showcasing applications over LTE together with its partner Nokia Siemens Networks.

"I am delighted with the completion of today's data call, which met our requirements for low latency, high speed, and reliability," said Patrick Scodeller, chief technical officer at M1. "The ongoing trial will let us obtain firsthand experience of Nokia Siemens Networks' commercially ready LTE hardware and software, based on its Flexi Multiradio base stations. Our network modernization contract with Nokia Siemens Networks represents the first steps in our evolution towards LTE, and this trial helps pave the way to faster and better quality mobile broadband services in the future."

"LTE will not only enable a rich enduser experience but also help drive new business opportunities for operators like M1," said Ricky Corker, head of Asia Pacific, Nokia Siemens Networks. "The technology is rapidly approaching commercial introduction in many markets, and trials such as these are proof of LTE's potential to deliver fantastic mobile broadband."

M1 will be showcasing High Definition (HD) TV streaming, as well as highspeed file download over an LTE network at its flagship store until end March 2010.
