T-Mobile Austria has launched its 'Broadband Offensive', with a portfolio of new services to deliver internet to fixed and mobile locations. 

With its home internet services HomeNet, the operator offers HomeNet Hybrid, a router combining the LTE network with a DSL connection. HomeNet Hybrid will be introduced in January 2018, first in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland, and within a couple of weeks Austria-wide. 

For secondary residences, T-Mobile recently introduced the HomeNet Flex service

For car drivers, the operator offers CarConnect, to turn the car into a broadband hotspot and also transfer various telemetric data about the car to the CarConnect mobile application. 

The service FamilyBytes offers each HomeNet client an extra 20 GB free to be used across the whole ecosystem of broadband devices: the car with CarConnect, in an extra SIM card for a tablet for EUR 1.99, with connected devices such as alarms or simply increase the data limit for a smartphone.

T-Mobile said the new services follow massive investment in its LTE network, which covers more than 97 percent of the population. This year, the investments of EUR 160-70 million will exceed the investments of 2016 by about 30 percent. In the past five years, the operator has invested EUR 1.3 billion in LTE. The operator also has the second biggest fibre-optic network in the country.
