  • This innovation is reflected in the various tariffs offered, ranging from FIX M 5G+ to FIX XXL, with various speed and price options.

The significance for consumers and businesses:

  • 5G+ opens new possibilities for high-performance applications like live TV broadcasting, autonomous vehicles, and Industry 4.0 solutions.
  • For the average consumer, this means improved internet speeds and stability, especially for streaming and online gaming.
