A1 Telekom Austria offers 100Gbps links to Turkey with 200Gbps to follow


A1 Telekom Austria Group has established the fastest route to Turkey and is offering a range between 2Mb to 100Gb, with up to 200Gb soon.

Due to the direct crossing through Austria via Salzburg and the Karawanken tunnel (pictured), A1 Group is providing the shortest route from Frankfurt to Turkey, with two more redundant routes as backup.

International Carrier Ethernet (which complies with MEF standards) as well as capacity services enable the interconnection of multiple company locations or data centres, meaning multinational corporations can interconnect their business premises via flexible scalable bandwidths.

Better performance

A1 Austria says this should especially improve performance for streaming services and gaming due to reduced latency and runtimes.

Franz Bader, Director Wholesale at A1 Telekom Austria Group, says, "Over the past few years, the wholesale business unit of A1 Telekom Austria Group Wholesale has developed into a Pan-European carrier. I'm therefore particularly delighted to be able to announce the enhancement of this very important routing.

"By enabling this route, we further lay the foundation of global connections for our customers. Numerous global carriers and OTTs already trust this new speedy service".

The operator says it was the first carrier in Central and Eastern Europe to achieve MEF CE2.0 certification, with two of the three service classes E-Line, E-LAN und E-Access being subject to thorough scrutiny.
