The entire territory of Prague will be covered by October 2014

Prague, 25 June 2014 – T-Mobile has increased the download and upload speeds of its fastest mobile internet technology in Prague to 112.5 Mbps and 37.5 Mbps, respectively. To achieve that, the operator increased the bandwidth used from 10 to 15 MHz.

In several areas of Prague (i.e. in the vicinity of Horní Počernice, Černý Most and Roztyly), the bandwidth has been increased to 20 MHz, allowing LTE speeds of up to 150/50 Mbps. The operator intends to increase the number of areas thus covered. Until now, the maximum speeds of T-Mobile’s LTE network in Prague were half the current speed, i.e. 75/25 Mbps. Thanks to this step, the operator currently offers the fastest LTE network in Prague.

T-Mobile continues to expand its coverage of the capital of the Czech Republic with LTE, which will be completed by October 2014. In July, the city’s fastest mobile internet service will be available in Vysočany, Černý Most, Horní Počernice, Letňany, Střížkov, Prosek and Ďáblice; in August, the LTE network will be expanded to Kobylisy, Bohnice, Čimice and Holešovice. During September and October, the entire western part of Prague, i.e. Suchdol, Dejvice, Střešovice, Hradčany, Břevnov, Motol, Radlice, Stodůlky, Zličín, Barrandov, Chuchle, Radotín and Zbraslav, will be covered with the LTE network.

By the end of 2014, T-Mobile’s fast mobile internet networks (LTE and 3G) will be available to 93% of the population of the Czech Republic, covering 80% of its territory.
