European web users could soon gain access to improved wireless broadband after Powerwave Technologies announced plans for a new network of antennas.
The firm, a provider of end-to-end wireless coverage and capacity solutions, is making the infrastructure upgrade in order to cater for the new 4G wireless broadband spectrum.
Khurram P Sheikh, Chief Product and Development Officer at the firm, said that with the GSM Association predicting there will be a billion people using mobile broadband by 2012, there is "tremendous demand for innovative wireless solutions".
He commented that operators wish to roll out 4G wireless services quickly and cost-effectively, "taking full advantage of monetising the new spectrum allocations".
Mr Sheikh said that Powerwave Technologies was already taking "a leading role" in helping operators deploy 4G advanced wireless networks in North America, and the new product line-up will allow European consumers to benefit from the same services.
Earlier this month, it was reported that a new wireless broadband service is set to improve web connection speeds in Norwich.
The Advertiser 24 explained that engineering firm Babcock International is to fit a chain of rooftop antennas, enabling consumers to receive up to 30Mb broadband.
