HT doubles 4G network speed
- Maximum speed of 4G Internet access is increased from 75 Mbps to 150 Mbps
- Hrvatski Telekom dictates the pace of high-speed Internet development with new investments
As a market leader in the development of high-speed internet, Hrvatski Telekom is taking a new step forward: it is increasing the maximum speed of Internet access in its mobile 4G network from the current 75 Mbps (megabits per second) to 150 Mbps. Users will be able to enjoy the benefits of the twice as fast 4G internet from mid-February.
"Hrvatski Telekom invests in the development and the new infrastructure more than one billion a year. The new investment in which we purchased an additional radio frequency spectrum allows us to offer our customers twice the speed of mobile Internet, and our 4G network delivers the fastest "surfing" in Croatia. Speeds allowed by our 4G network mean for users even more advanced and better use of services such as live TV streaming (MAXtv To Go), HD video streaming and online gaming. We continue with the investments in network development. In addition to mobile, HT continues with investments in the landline network and the expansion of our optical network", emphasizes Thorsten Albers, Member of the Board of HT and Chief Technical and Information Technology officer.
Hrvatski Telekom was among the first in Europe to adopt the LTE fourth generation standard in mobile telecommunications, and today operates a 4G network that is accessible to a large part of the Croatian population. Late last year, it also invested in the purchase of the additional radio frequency spectrum in HAKOM tender, which enabled doubling the speed of access to the mobile internet.
