BERNE, Switzerland -- Swisscom is the first provider in Switzerland to offer its customers 4G/LTE roaming. From 21 June, Swisscom customers will be able to surf the Internet in South Korea with 4G/LTE. Other countries will be added on an ongoing basis “Not only have we assumed a pioneering role in the expansion of 4G/LTE in Switzerland, we are also now the international front runner when it comes to LTE roaming. This is something we are proud of, because it demonstrates our innovativeness“, says Heinz Herren, Head of Network & IT at Swisscom.
From tomorrow, 21 June, Swisscom will be making fast connections on the new 4G/LTE technology available to its customers in South Korea. The service is expected to be expanded to Canada and Hong Kong at the beginning of July. This makes Swisscom the first provider in Europe to facilitate 4G/LTE roaming on another continent. Swisscom 4G/LTE is likely to become available in some European countries in late summer, with further countries being added on an ongoing basis.
