BRATISLAVA, Slovakia -- T-Mobile Slovakia (henceforth referred to also as “T-Mobile Slovensko, a. s.”) and Siemens today announce the launch of Europe’s first commercial mobile broadband service using Flarion Technologies’ FLASH-OFDM network technology. As of today, the service is available in selected areas of Bratislava, and in 19 other cities around Slovakia.

During the official launch event in Slovakia today, Michael Guenther, Member of the Board, T-Mobile International, and Chairman of the Board, T-Mobile Slovensko, a. s., stated: “Mobile broadband access is an extremely important asset in today's world of communication. It will soon become a vital part of countries’ infrastructure. I am very pleased to see our company in Slovakia be the world’s pioneer for this exciting new technology that has the power to deliver broadband internet to offices and homes even in areas that lack other telecommunications infrastructure."

“By launching our Fast Internet service using FLASH-OFDM technology, we are making a giant leap in increasing the lagging broadband internet penetration in Slovakia,” stated Robert Chvatal, CEO, T-Mobile Slovakia. “We want to provide a broadband internet choice also outside of big cities and increase the choice beyond DSL and cable,” he added.
