4G

Bhutan Telecom’s 4G (LTE) service was launched on the 24th of October, 2013.

LTE was launched in Thimphu, Thimphu being the nation’s one of the most valuable data markets. 4G service operates in 1800 MHz (band 3) with Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) technology. This band was chosen since it is widely adopted by most Southeast Asian Countries which means that dongles and other devices like phones could be easily available in the market. But customers are advised to check with their vendors if their gadgets support this frequency band before availing 4G service. Some examples of gadgets that can support this service are Sony Z, HTC one, Nokia Lumia-920 and iPad mini among others.
