swissSwisscom is a very innovative and efficient network provider in Switzerland.  They have recently become the first of Switzerland’s network companies to provide LTE advanced (LTE-A) technology.  This shows that they are keeping up with the quickly evolving technology of our world and at the same time are influencing other companies to also advance their LTE technology to better the coverage of future networks.

Swisscom has been working on their research for this new LTE-A technology since February of 2014.  Since then it has been installed on the network side in Berne and Lausanne railway stations.  In the future – the closest being July – Swisscom plans to have this new technology available for customers in Berne and Biel/Bienne, the capital of Switzerland and another major city.  They also plan to expand the new network to the cities of Basel, Lugano, Geneva, Lucerne, and Zurich in the near future.

Customers all throughout Switzerland will soon be able to connect their smart phones and tablets to this network, gaining access to high-speed coverage wherever they go.  This new LTE advanced technology will provide speeds up to 300 Mbps.  This speed is made possible by successfully uniting two separate 4G LTE channels that each offers a speed of 150 Mbps.

Swisscom is focusing the majority of their funds on their LTE-A research and expansion.  They want this technology to reach as many customers and cities as possible in the shortest amount of time.  They are therefore spending billions of dollars in order to make this happen.  Their efficiency and innovation are what has gotten them to the top of their industry and people all over Switzerland should expect this LTE advanced network technology to be reaching them very shortly.
