23 Aug 2018

Polish cable TV and broadband provider UPC Poland has introduced a 1Gbps plan for customers in Warsaw following its deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 technology in the city. Although currently limited to the capital, UPC will gradually make the faster speeds available in other locations. Alongside the faster data transfer rate, the new plan also includes the operator’s ‘Giga Connect Box’ modem, which features Smart Wi-Fi technology that intelligently manages the division of the connection between devices on the network to optimise users’ experiences.

‘The introduction of the 1Gbps speed begins the gigabit era in Poland and confirms our leading position in the field of internet and television entertainment,’ the company noted in its press release, adding: ‘The launch of ground-breaking gigabit speed, which is the result of multi-million investment in the development of fibre-optic DOCSIS 3.1 technology, will allow customers to offer new opportunities in the field of virtual entertainment, as well as support in business development.’
