MTC has launched commercial 4G data services over an LTE network covering large parts of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia.

It has made these services available via three devices, the Samsung Galaxy TAB 8.9 LTE tablet, the Samsung SII LTE smartphone and a 4G dongle.

A 4G data subscription from MTC costs NAD349 ($41.50) for the ‘Netman 4G Extreme’ package, which offers 5GB data, along with an additional 10GB per month, under promotion till 30 September 2012. Unused data can also be carried over to the next month, with maximum upload/download (u/d) speeds of 50Mbps/25Mbps.

Also available is an Unlimited package, which costs NAD949 ($114) and comes with higher peak u/d speeds of 100Mbps/50Mbps. These rates for the Extreme and Ultimate packages will revert back to the standard of NAD399 ($48) and NAD999 ($120) respectively, after 30 September.

MTC has announced that it intends to cover the whole of Windhoek with LTE by July, and nearly 45% of Namibia, including rural areas, in 12 months.
