customers can experience faster download speeds, smooth HD video
streaming, superior online gaming and much more. Enterprises and SMEs
will also benefit from Mobitelís 4G-LTE network due to its reliability
and higher average speeds experienced while catering to many customers.

their business data needs more cost effectively.
Mobitelís mobile 4G-LTE services are backed by the power of its
parent company SLTís extensive fiber network.
Mobitel, renowned for its pioneering efforts in the mobile technology
industry, adds this latest landmark launch to its list of achievements.
The launch of this network is part of Mobitelís ongoing efforts to
expand on coverage and quality, driving investment for the country,
