Apple enables LTE access only after testing operators' networks

Swiss telecoms operator Swisscom has said Apple Inc. is not allowing mobile operators to offer the iPhone 5 as an LTE device unless they pass the Californian vendor's own independent tests for LTE network performance, Telecoms.com has reported. "Apple only enables 4G access after testing their device on an operator's live network," a Swisscom spokesman said. Bengt Nordstrom, founder and CEO at industry consultancy NorthStream said this proved "who is running the industry." Apple have put themselves in the driving seat; it's really changing the game, he added.
