TRA lifts ban on Du calling mobile internet services 4G

The UAE Telecoms Regulatory Authority (TRA) has lifted a ban on Du marketing its mobile internet service as 4G, The National has reported. The decision was made following an investigation by the regulator, which said Du can restart its 4G advertising campaign, provided the technology used to deliver it is clearly specified. Du's network, which uses a technology called HSPA+, offers speeds of 42 megabits per second (mbps). "We have received a clearance from the TRA to market the HSPA+ service as 4G," said Osman Sultan, the chief executive of Du.
