Hutchison Drei Austria (formerly H3G) has confirmed that it has extended its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to Linz, Perg, Wels and Steyr, all of which are located in the state of Upper Austria. Previously, on 25 September, Drei confirmed that it had concluded its deployment of 6,000 LTE base stations in the Greater Vienna area, offering 98% coverage in the capital and its environs.

Following this week’s Upper Austria launch, Drei says that it is on track to cover 50% of the country as a whole by the end of 2014. Going forward, Drei plans to offer LTE to 98% of the Austrian population by the end of 2015.
