At year end 2010, 1.7 million Austrian households were within the coverage of the powerful Giga-network. At year end 2011 it will be more than 2.1 million households. The Telekom Austria Group’s Giga-network is based on a wide range of fiber-optic technologies and allows transmission speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s. The company’s mobile network A1 Net – which ranks first in terms of network quality in the German-speaking area – will have its transmission speeds and network performance upgraded through LTE technology and through the connection of mobile base stations to the fiber-optic network. At year-end 2010, more than 1,100 mobile base stations had been connected to the "hybrid Giganet".
According to Hannes Ametsreiter and Hans Tschuden, one important milestone for the company on its path towards the future is represented by the successful merger of the Austrian fixed line and mobile communication operations: "We have almost finalized the largest merger in Austrian economic history without any major losses. We would like to thank all our employees for their willingness to support this massive change, which has affected each one of us with such a great commitment and dedication." Thanks to this restructuring program, the Telekom Austria Group will now be in a better position to manage both operating costs and overall investments in a more efficient manner, considerably enhancing its effectiveness in the market.
