Telekom Austria A1 Rolls Out LTE-A Carrier Aggregation

Telekom Austria Group's subsidiaries A1 in Austria and Si.mobil in Slovenia are activating LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation to deliver higher bandwidth in select locations.

Working with Ericsson, A1 is using LTE Carrier Aggregation on two 20 MHz frequency blocks from the 800 and 2600 MHz frequency bands, which it acquired in auction in autumn 2013. In Austria, A1 has already started upgrading currently existing mobile base stations in Graz, especially in highly frequented areas.

In Slovenia, selected locations across six cities are going to be covered with LTE Carrier Aggregation with immediate effect. The Slovenian subsidiary Si.mobil has devoted concerted efforts to driving the rollout of its LTE network forward and expects total population coverage of 75% by year-end 2014.

"Network rollout is in full swing and with LTE Carrier Aggregation A1 and Si.mobil offer a further milestone by bringing this future-proof technology to our customers," said G√ľnther Ottendorfer, CTO Telekom Austria Group.
