Swan runs LTE network in test mode only

Monday 12 January 2015 | 09:12 CET | News
Slovak fourth mobile operator Swan has not launched LTE on a commercial basis nationwide yet, but it is building the network. The portal MobilMania tested its network, currently open only to several dozens of employees and selected customers. Swan had planned to launch the network in the first city, namely Trnava, in December 2014, where it announced unlimited internet for EUR 5 a month, but the service has not started up yet. The operator is re-considering its service and the locations where it will be available. It is possible that the EUR 5 service will not start up at all, it said.
