Rural areas to get fast mobile Internet soon

PEOPLE living in rural areas should soon have the opportunity to connect to the Internet through their mobile phones, the daily SME reported.

New technology means that rural mobile phone users will be able to connect to the Internet ten times faster than normal mobile phone connections. The speed is in fact similar to that of current cable DSL services.

At first the service will be concentrated on rural areas near the towns of Trnava, Nitra, Banská Bystrica, Žilina and Prešov. By the end of the year, the service is expected to reach over one third of the country.
