At the end of the year, 5G was activated at over 1,200 locations across Austria – This means that almost 40 percent of households and businesses are supplied with 5G Magenta Telekom Brexit
5G pioneer Magenta Telekom reached a new milestone in the 5G expansion at the end of the year and is now the first mobile communications provider to offer unlimited 5G internet at 1,200 5G-capable locations throughout Austria. Thus, Magenta reaches around 40 percent of households and businesses in Austria for the first time with the new mobile communications standard. Since July 2020, 400 new 5G-capable locations have been upgraded, in October there were already 1,000 and by the end of the year a total of 1,200. The 5G network expansion will continue in 2021.
The Corona crisis made the need for fast, stable internet particularly clear. Whether for home office, home schooling or streaming – the second lockdown already set a new record in data usage in the Magenta network.
5G Innovation Award 2021 for the Magenta 5G network
Since 2018, Magenta has been the undisputed leader in connect’s mobile network test, this year for the third time in a row. For the first time this year, 5G was a regular part of the connect network test. The 5G availability played an important role in the data discipline and the measurements confirm the clear speed advantage of 5G. These provided the highest data rates in Magenta’s 5G network. “In the overall 5G evaluation, however, Magenta is clearly ahead – and thus deserves our 5G innovation award”, is how the Connect editorial team justified the award of the 5G Innovation Award 2021 to Magenta.
