Hutchison Drei Austria has partnered with ZTE to develop and deploy Austria’s first operational 5G network, available to selected business clients in Linz.

The companies have activated a total of 20 5G sites in Linz, creating the first ever continuous 5G coverage throughout an Austrian city. Hutchinson Drei Austria is aiming for full 5G coverage of the city and other regions throughout Austria. 

As part of 5G  launch, selected business clients of Hutchison Drei Austria have received ZTE E2E 5G solutions, in order to exclusively test-drive the ultra-fast internet.

Due to its stability, high performance and extremely low latency 5G is particularly interesting for large-scale business applications. The technology can further enable whole new fields of businesses and services from virtual reality and self-driving cars to robotic surgery, says ZTE. Moreover, 5G positively impacts the associated network eco-system such as cloud-services. 

Christian Woschitz, CEO, ZTE Austria
We are very proud that, together with our partner Hutchison Drei Austria, we are first to offer 5G devices as the ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G, ZTE 5G Indoor Router and now as well to be the first providing continuous 5G coverage in Linz.

Jan Tionow, CEO, Drei
Other providers are just '5G ready' or have upgraded individual transmission masts across Austria. Today we are launching the first true contiguous 5G network worthy of the name. While the others only talk about the future, in Linz it is already a reality today.
