T-Mobile Austria raises top LTE transmission speed to 150Mbps

12 Mar 2014

T-Mobile Austria has announced that customers currently accessing downlink transmission speeds of 100Mbps via its LTE tariffs, will see their maximum download speed increase to 150Mbps free of charge – providing they are using a ‘Category-4’-enabled device. To date, the only compatible device is the Home Net Box router, although Cat.4 smartphones are expected to be made available later this year. The cellco claims to deliver LTE coverage to around 2.1 million people – around one-quarter of the Austrian population – using the 2600MHz band.
