Leading companies from the sector will show the latest advances in world mobile communication during the MWC this year, which was expected to be attended by between 60,000 to 70,000 people.

A series of conferences will offer cutting-edge informations by some of the most important people in the industry and the most innovative companies.

Telecommunications operators will be able to offer fourth generation LTE (Long Term Evolution) from 2014, said Spain's Secretary of State for Telecommunication Victor Calvo Sotelo.




"We are going to see a revolution in mobile technology over the next six years and it will be a great benefit, which we all want to protect," he said.
