9 Jul 2013

According to an unconfirmed report by Telecompaper, A1 Telekom Austria has upgraded its 1,000th base station to support 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. A1’s LTE network now covers all state capitals and nine metropolitan areas, equivalent to more than one third of the Austrian population. The firm reportedly intends to expand the service to more than 25 metropolitan areas by end-2013. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, A1 notched up its 800th LTE base station in November 2012, although more than half of these were concentrated in Vienna, which boasted 88% coverage at that date.
