A1 offers hybrid DSL-LTE broadband to customers

Friday 15 July 2016 | 20:54 CET | News
A1 Telekom Austria has announced the roll-out of 'Hybrid Boost' technology combining fixed-line internet and LTE up to 100 Mbps. A1 will invest around EUR 500 million in the coming years to expand broadband internet availability in urban and rural areas. This investment will be used to expand both fixed-line internet and 4G networks. The core of this Hybrid Boost technology is the new A1 Hybrid Box, which combines a broadband WLAN modem and 4G/LTE module. By combining the bandwidth of both technologies, customers receive a Hybrid Boost up to 100 Mbps downstream and 20 Mbps upstream.
