High-speed surfing for smartphones
Aug 30, 2012
- LTE Speed option cranks speed up to 100 Mbit/s
- Option available with all Complete Mobile rates for an additional EUR 9.95/month
- Telekom customers always access the best available network
Fast, faster, Telekom: with the new LTE Speed option, Deutsche Telekom customers can surf the Internet with their smartphones at speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s.
No other provider in Germany currently offers this speed. The LTE Speed option can be purchased from September 4 for EUR 9.95/month with all Complete Mobile rates. The data volume included in the selected rate also doubles, increasing your surfing pleasure.
The new option is being launched at the same time as the first LTE-capable smartphones, such as the HTC One XL and Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE.
The LTE Speed option's contract period is three months.
But Telekom customers will enjoy the benefits of the new LTE high-speed network even without the new LTE Speed option, with speeds of up to 21.6 Mbit/s. All contract rates are technology-neutral, which means customers can always use the best available network.
Telekom continues to invest heavily in the upgrade of its cellular network. By the end of this year, the company will have linked 100 cities to the high-speed LTE network, putting its customers on the fast lane of the mobile information superhighway. More than 10 million customers in rural regions already enjoy fast mobile broadband through LTE 800. In addition, Telekom offers download speeds of up to 42 Mbit/s in its entire UMTS network, reaching some 87 percent of Germany's population.
