Magenta 5G reaches 600 locations

3 Jul 2020

Full-service provider Magenta Telekom, which was formed last year from the merger of wireless operator T-Mobile Austria and cableco UPC Austria, has announced that its 5G network is now active at 600 locations across the country, covering 25% of Austrian homes and businesses. By the end of the year the total coverage will increase to 1,200 locations, representing almost 40% of homes and businesses. Magenta Telekom noted that it is implementing Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) to enable the parallel operation of two mobile communications standards (4G and 5G) in one frequency band at the same location.

Between 2018 and 2021 Magenta plans to invest around EUR1 billion (USD1.1 billion) in its fixed and mobile infrastructure across the entire country.
