UPC Austria teams up with 3 for quick-fix business connections

Cable operator UPC Austria has teamed up with its usual mobile network partner 3 Austria to provide mobile broadband as a quick fix for business customers until they can be connected via fixed-line ADSL or xDSL broadband.

The new service, dubbed Quick Install, gives business customers access to UMTS/HSDPA-based mobile broadband until fixed broadband lines can be installed, giving up to 7.2Mbps downstream and up to 384kbps upstream, with a one-off installation fee of €150. The service can be disabled or retained as a back-up when the fixed-line service is installed.
