Whether on the daily commute to work or on the way to events such as soccer matches and the Oktoberfest – thanks to 5G, O2 customers benefit from an improved network experience on all lines from U1 to U8. They have access to higher mobile data rates and more network capacity when they use music and video streaming or other digital applications while riding the subway.
The Munich subway is the most important means of public transport in Munich. Every day, the Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG) transports over one million passengers. An excellent mobile network is therefore essential. O2 Telefónica has already been offering all customers 4G/LTE for mobile telephony and data usage “underground” since 2017. Now, the telecommunications provider has also activated the future standard 5G, making the mobile network in the subway area fit for the future. Thanks to 5G, customers will also be able to use completely new digital applications in the future. These include sophisticated mobile gaming and virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR) applications.
