T-Mobile teamed up with Netflix in February 2015 to become Austria's first mobile operator to provide its WOW ("The programs I want, when I want them") videostreaming service on the LTE network; T-Mobile also started buying back used cell phones and tablets.

    The T-Mobile network was voted “Austria's fastest LTE network” by Smartphone Magazin in 2014.

    2015 will be characterized by the rapid expansion of LTE at T-Mobile, with around 50 new LTE stations being connected to the network every week at present; another 2,000 stations will be added in 2015 as a result. Thanks to this investment initiative, T-Mobile will be able to offer broadband to 9 out of 10 Austrians by the end of 2015, with more than 95 percent of the Austrian population covered by LTE at the end of 2016. To ensure that the fast rollout of the mobile network does not harm the environment, the T-Mobile network has been run emission-free since early 2015.
