– now the infrastructure expansion in the area is progressing.
mobile radio initiative
Thanks to the support of the ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz, the mobile network operators have set out to close the last gaps in the mobile network in the West Palatinate. So you have good reception even in the sparsely populated areas.
5G Model region
The new 5G mobile communications standard forms the basis for numerous technologies of the future. The introduction is particularly promoted in six model regions nationwide. The greater Kaiserslautern area prevailed against numerous other applicants, making it a technological pioneer in this field.
As early as 2014, on the initiative of the ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz, it was started to equip several inner cities in West Palatinate with powerful hotspots. Since then, the public WLAN networks can be used free of charge.
The regional partners work together to take advantage of the opportunities offered by long-wave technology. The focus is on potential business models in the area of smart city and smart farming. Another future field for the West Palatinate. The "Pfalzwerke" and the "Stadtwerke Kaiserslautern" are still very active in this sector.
free radio West Palatinate
Thanks to the "Freifunk Westpfalz" project, which arose out of the citizenship, the West Palatinate and their visitors can now enjoy a close-knit network of free WiFi in smaller towns such as Rockenhausen, Otterberg or Kirchheimbolanden.
To ensure that all households and businesses have fast Internet access as soon as possible, broadband expansion has been in full swing in all parts of the region since 2017.
In addition to the public WLAN networks in the cities and to enable surfing and general Internet access at various outdoor events, two WLAN cases for mobile hotspots are available for loan in the West Palatinate.
These can be reserved from ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz and K-net or empera.
