‘We are pushing the pace with the mobile network expansion. We currently have more than 32,000 locations in operation,’ commented Walter Goldenits, Managing Director of Technology at Telekom Deutschland, adding: ‘In addition, we set up more than 1,500 new locations every year. Moreover, there are LTE and 5G expansions at thousands of existing locations. As part of our massive expansion activities, 5G will become the new standard in Telekom’s cellular network.’
