In times of facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the accomplishments of nameless heroes often go unsung: the A1 technicians.

During race week, one of A1’s employees walks around 9 kilometres a day to ensure the whole area remains “online”. The company’s responsibilities include providing internet and phone services: 5,000 users are connected to the A1 WLAN network at any given time, which can be accessed anywhere ranging from the VIP stands and Kitz-Race-Club, to the commentator booths and Press Centre.

Around 6,000 metres of cables are laid and 3,000 GB of data used in the scope of the Hahnenkamm Races – powerful figures and a tremendous achievement.
