Slovak ISP SWAN has upped the peak speeds offered by its 3.7GHz TD-LTE fixed-wireless home broadband service. Peak theoretical download rates have been increased from 70Mbps to 150Mbps, while maximum upload rates have doubled from 5Mbps to 10Mbps. Roman Vavrik, CEO of SWAN, said: ‘The service is available in twelve regions of Slovakia and by the end of the year we plan to offer it to customers in 55 districts.’ The districts covered now are: Zilina, Trnava, Malacky, Martin, Michalovce, Galanta, Lucenec, Nove Zamky, Revuca, Senica, Stropkov and Turcianske Teplice.
The new home broadband product – TO.doma XL – costs EUR24.99 (USD27.58) a month on a two-year contract, with a one-off set-up fee of EUR33. The previous top-tier tariff – TO.doma L – costs EUR19.99 a month for a 70Mbps/5Mbps connection. SWAN recently began marketing 1Gbps services over its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure which is available in 16 cities, while it also provides broadband connectivity via DSL networks.
