Drei extends 4G network to Klagenfurt, Villach

10 Dec 2014

Hutchison Drei Austria (formerly H3G) has confirmed that it has extended its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network to the cities of Klagenfurt and Villach in the state of Carinthia. The deployment means that Drei has extended 4G coverage to 60% of the population, beating its previous year-end prediction of 50% population coverage. CEO Jan Trionow notes that the cellco’s deployment rate has increased dramatically since it started using refarmed 1800MHz spectrum for its 4G rollout. Going forward, Drei plans to offer LTE to 98% of the Austrian population by the end of 2015.
