According to the MTR Platform benchmarking test report by research company Kapado in December 2013, CSL was ranked the top for quality and speed in Hong Kong.

CSL, which launched the world’s first dual-band 4G LTE/DC-HSPA+ network in 2010, introduced an LTE-Advanced service capable of transmission rates of 300Mbps in 2013, leveraging ZTE’s LTE-A technology for 20 MHz+20 MHz carrier aggregation of frequencies 2.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz.

“In the high-network traffic environment of the MTR, test results show that CSL users can enjoy stable and fast network coverage, thanks to ZTE’s LTE technology,” said Xiang Yang, general manager for LTE Products at ZTE.

Some of the LTE clients of ZTE include CSL, China Mobile, China Telecom, Bharti Airtel, Hutchison, Telenor, TeliaSonera, Vodafone and Vimpelcom.
