Thursday 4 January 2018 | 13:07 CET | News
Unitymedia, which operates in North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse and Baden-Wurtttemberg, said the trends for 2018 will be towards Gigabit-speed internet on both the fixed and mobile networks, smart home services, IoT, digital television, video on Demand and Ultra-HD TV. Business customers can look forward to a hosted PBX system and a cloud service, said Unitymedia, without giving any details. It will provide its first UHD TV channel this year, through an unspecified partner.
