A1 Telekom Austria Strives to Utilise Potential of Digital Technologies
Alejandro Plater, who is the COO of A1 Telekom Austria, explained the strategic moves at CEE and stated that the entity is working with the core strategy to utilise the potential of digital technologies for sustainable positive future opportunities.

A1 Telekom has Installed 1000 New 5G Sites into Operation
A1 Telekom has been working hard to deploy the 5G sites for providing a high-speed network to its users. Since the beginning of the year, A1 has nearly deployed 1000 new 5G sites to bring high-speed broadband services to both urban and rural provinces. Together with the largest fibre network of Australia that already extends about 61,000 km, the A1 5GigaNet combines and provides the best broadband technologies.
In the same period, A1 Slovenia has acquired multiple spectrum bands that will be valid for 15 years. The entire funding for the spectrum acquisition will be done by the current cash flow of A1 Telekom Austria Group. Dejan Turk, CEO Cluster Serbia and Slovenia, said that the rollout and future developments of the powerful A1 network would aid the digitalisation of Slovenian society. The network will open the door to future technologies such as e-health, cloud gaming, autonomous driving and more.
