To provide a superior mobile broadband experience for hundreds of thousands of football fans attending the tournament, Russian mobile operator company MTS has teamed up with Ericsson for deployments of Massive MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) technology.
With the deployment of this technology, football fans will be able to enjoy higher data speeds in seven of the 11 tournament cities, whether in the stadiums, in fan zones, selected transportation hot spots, or at some of Russia's most famous landmarks, the statement added.
The month-long tournament gets underway on June 14 and ends on July 15.
