Slovak fixed and mobile operator SWAN has doubled the download rate on its entry-level fixed-wireless broadband plan to 12Mbps. The price of the service, which utilises TD-LTE technology in the 3.5GHz and 3.7GHz bands, has been increased slightly from EUR9.90 (USD11.22) to EUR9.99 a month, the operator says. SWAN has also introduced a new ‘Home Medium’ plan, which offers a download rate of 25Mbps at EUR14.99 per month, while its top-end package provides downloads at up to 75Mbps and upload speeds of 5Mbps for EUR19.99. The set-up fee for the TD-LTE service is EUR129 on a twelve-month contract.
SWAN’s TD-LTE fixed-wireless service has replaced its legacy WiMAX offering and is available in over two dozen cities, with plans to expand the footprint to other markets to provide broadband connectivity in areas not covered by fixed high speed services. SWAN also provides a range of DSL and fibre-based internet products in a number of markets, while sister company SWAN Mobile operates a 4G LTE cellular network under the brand 4ka.
