A1's Austrian 5G network is growing unstoppably. As the mobile operator announced today, 5000 5G transmitters were put into operation.

Together with its technological partner, Nokia, A1 put 5,000 5G beacons into operation. The Group announced yesterday that it had reached this milestone. The Austrian 5G network therefore continues to grow after only starting in January 2020. According to the company, A1 already reaches 80 percent of the Austrian population with the 5th generation mobile communication standard. The expansion is expected to continue in the coming months.

A1 CTO Alexander Stock said: “We are proud of the outstanding quality with which we have expanded the 5G network together with our European supplier, Nokia. Together, we will do everything we can to ensure that everyone in Austria benefits from investments in our ultra-fast networks. With the 5000. We are celebrating another important milestone with the 5G transmitter. Because the dense 5G network and numerous technical innovations benefit not only our private customers, but also companies and industry."

With the success message, A1 is also taking a breather to take advantage of the benefits of 5G. Among other things, the standard offers companies the possibility of fast 5G campus networks, which A1 tailors specifically to the needs of customers. They not only offer greater data security, but also enable more efficient networking. It is also possible to connect several company locations to a network with a 5G network slice.

A1 and Nokia are also working on new high-speed technologies such as 3-component carrier aggregation (3CC-CA) and 5G for both standalone industrial and private use. Greater network capacities can be achieved with carrier aggregation and shared frequency bands. By combining the two technologies, a data transfer speed of 2 Gbit/s was already achieved in the test connections.
