    Question moves the through the coverage area

    Hi,

    Below is from a book "TD-SCDMA Techonlogy" :

    In order to mitigate the effect of interference and improve the coverage at the cellís edge, conventional CDMA 3G systems have to use the so-called soft handover when an ongoing call needs to be transferred from one cell to another as a user moves the through the coverage area.


    Why use "the" before "through the coverage area"?
    Can I say "....moves through the coverage area..."?

    Thanks.

    It's what's technically known as "a mistake".

    I am not sure of if it is a mistake.

    "through" is a preposition, now it becomes "the through", is it a noun in here???

    No, the "the" is a mistake. It doesn't belong there.
