Telenor renovating network
Vojvodina was first to get the fastest network in the country
July 29, 2011 - Vojvodina is the first region of Serbia where Telenor subscribers can surf the Internet at several-time higher speeds than before. This is a result of Telenor’s project of renovating the network infrastructure, completed at end-July.
The network renovation project, launched in mid-2010, represents one of the largest capital investments of Telenor since the arrival to the market of Serbia. It is planned to completely renovate the network at the entire territory of Serbia in the first half of 2012.
Maximum speeds in the cities across Vojvodina range from 14.4 Mb/s to 21 Mb/s. For instance, downloading will now be up to five times faster than before. Subscribers will notice the change in opening pages, posting contents and connection quality.
All vital parts of the network, from radio and transport network to the core and service platforms, are being renovated, and the equipment of the most renowned producers, Huawei, Ericsson and Nera, is being used.
“In recent years, we have witnessed fast changes in the growth of the Internet in Serbia. The development of services and user habits follows the pace of the world and requires a network which will enable fast and reliable data traffic. There is an increasing number of advanced devices, such as new models of smartphones and tablets, which function best in fast networks. We offer a reliable network which supports advanced services and provides the fastest Internet at any location and at any time to subscribers, for whom the Internet access is already an everyday need and habit,” says Marek Slacik, Chief Marketing Officer.
Simultaneously with the network improvement, Telenor is introducing devices at the market – new modems and tablets - for mobile access to the Internet at high speeds. Telenor in Serbia is one of three mobile operators in Europe which offer Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to its subscribers.
The new network saves up to 30% of power, thus contributing to environmental protection. The renovated network will be ready to support the coming 4G technology as well.
