Libyana Mobile Phone has launched Libya’s first 4G-LTE network, a step that aims to enhance coverage and performance and get more customers.

The mobile operator, one of the country’s only two mobile companies, said on Sunday the new technology would provide customers with a high-speed internet connection up to 150 Mbps (megabits per second) at a very cheap price. 

The new technology will be available in Tripoli, Zawiya, Sabha and Misrata at the moment, the company reported, adding the service will move to other regions soon. No further details were given.

LTE is a fourth generation or 4G mobile service that delivers reliable and super-fast internet on a smartphone or tablet.
