UPC Austria extends Wi-Free offering

Liberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Austria is to extend its Wi-Free public WiFi offering to its entire network following what it said was a successful pilot project in Graz.

Wi-Free, based on the partitioning of UPC subscribers’ private WiFi clouds, gives users access to thousands of hotspots across the country, with downstream speeds of up to 10Mbps and upstream speeds of up to 2Mbps. UPC Austria will make the service available across Austria from October 19.

UPC Wi-Free is already available in other Liberty Global networks including those in the Netherlands, Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Ireland.
