As a result, Warsaw is now Liberty Global’s first gigabit city in Poland and the second in Europe after Bochum in Germany.
Alongside the gigabit service, UPC Polska has also introduced the Giga Connect Box and Smart Wi-Fi in Poland.
The operator notes that it increased the internet speeds to 150Mbps for around 300,000 of its clients this month and that the average download speed it offers is now 170Mbps.
Commenting on the launch of the gigabit service, UPC CEO Robert Redeleanu said: “The introduction of the 1Gbps speed begins the gigabit era in Poland and confirms our leading position in the field of internet and television entertainment. The launch of ground-breaking gigabit speed, which is the result of multi-million investment in the development of fibre-optic DOCSIS 3.1 technology, will allow customers to offer new opportunities in the field of virtual entertainment, as well as support in business development. The groundbreaking speed of 1Gbps, complemented by a consistent increase in speed for loyal customers, as well as a richer portfolio in the field of internet speeds and TV entertainment, is proof that the UPC Polska team wants to innovate and constantly increase customer satisfaction”.
