Salt takes on the Gigabit mark! Jan. 10, 2018

In December Salt started to deploy new antenna equipment in Renens (VD), which now allows customers to reach download speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second. Not many devices are designed to achieve such velocities but most sought-after smartphones of the moment reach impressive results of roughly 600 Mbps, which can now easily be observed when doing speed tests in our Renens Salt Store.

Besides making high speed users’ hair stand on end, this is also good news for Salt’s entire customer base in the vicinity of the Salt Store in Renens as the deployment will improve the overall down- and uplink capacity of the Store’s antenna available at any given time. Indeed, an antenna’s network capacity is always shared by all active network users. Increasing threefold the maximum throughput capacity of the antenna in Salt’s Renens office building will hence benefit everyone in the antenna’s catchment area, irrespective of the device they own.
