Telekom Slovenije introduces pre-paid LTE

4 Sep 2013

Telekom Slovenije’s mobile division Mobitel has extended its range of 4G LTE services – launched in March this year – to pre-paid users, making it the first operator in Slovenia to do so. Users with existing pre-paid mobile internet packages can add Mobitel 4G LTE data transfer as a free add-on, with LTE coverage currently spanning 55 locations, 157 base stations and almost 50% of the population. Terms and conditions for using 4G data are the same as for contract customers: requiring a device which can access LTE (with a range of 21 different LTE devices, including mobile phones and tablets, USB modems for laptops/PCs and Mi-Fi mobile hotspots), a USIM-card, plus activating a ‘Hitri’ 4G internet service, the operator’s press release states. Under current offers, one day of internet use (with maximum theoretical down/upload speeds of 100Mbps/50Mbps) costs EUR1 (USD1.3) for pre-paid users, while they can get 30 days for EUR10 and 100 days for EUR20. Users have a choice between two packages; the first costs EUR9.90 and comes with a SIM card, and the second for EUR79 comes with a ZTE MF60 uFi mobile access point. Telekom also introduced a new package, available at its online store, which comes with a Huawei E3276 LTE USB modem for EUR99.
