One of the UK's leading mobile broadband providers is to trial next-generation technology, it has been revealed.

O2's parent company subsidiary Telefonica has announced plans to launch test projects for long-term evolution (LTE) systems in countries including the UK, Spain, Germany and the Czech Republic.

It is believed that peak broadband speeds of 340Mb will be offered through the technology in "ideal conditions".

According to Julio Linares, chief operating officer of Telefonica, the trials are part of the company's efforts to offer "maximum levels of quality" to customers.

He added: "We are defining our strategy and the rollout of LTE with the objective of driving mobile broadband and offering the best service from the moment that the equipment and terminals can support the new standards and are available for sale."

Details of the plans have come after O2 confirmed the launch of Joined Up, its new service offering companies a solution for their fixed line, data and broadband needs.
