  • The network expansion is reaching a total of 145 cities and communities

As of today, almost 140,000 additional households in 145 cities and communities can now connect to the Internet at speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s for downloads and at 40 Mbit/s for uploads. The cities benefiting include Paderborn, with 9,300 households, Rheinfelden , with 8,600, Bochum-Wattenscheid with 8,000, Heusweiler with 5,800, and Ingelheim with another 5,600 households, among others. Deutsche Telekom aims to provide as many people as possible with fast Internet lines - whether they live in cities or in rural areas. 'We aren't only building information superhighways between major metropolises and population centers; our network also extends to rural areas. We are the only company pursuing comprehensive broadband expansion,' says Tim Höttges, CEO of Deutsche Telekom. 'Some of our upgrade projects are designed to serve tens of thousands of households, while others benefit just a handful. For us, every line counts. Whether it is serving cities like Chemnitz, Dresden and Hagen or small communities like Burgthann, Rantrum and Wolznach.' No other company is investing as much in broadband expansion in rural areas as Deutsche Telekom. The next FTTC commissioning wave will take place on June 11.

The following municipalities are all now provided with vectoring -based access:

Ahaus-Alstätte, Altshausen, Anklam, Ascheberg, Aulendorf, Bacharach, Bad Bentheim, Bad Lausick, Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg, Bad Pyrmont, Bad Schandau, Bad Waldsee, Baiersbronn, Beelitz, Bernstadt auf dem Eigen, Bestensee, Bisingen, Bochum-Wattenscheid, Bordesholm, Brandenburg/Havel, Brannenburg, Breisach, Bruchsal, Buchenberg, Burgthann, Chemnitz, Colditz, Darmstadt, Deidesheim, Dillingen, Dresden, Eisenhüttenstadt, Emmelshausen, Engen, Erkelenz-Lövenich, Esselbach, Falkenstein, Freilassing, Freudenstadt, Gevelsberg, Gifhorn, Gilching, Grabenstätt, Grafing, Grenzach-Wyhlen, Greven, Großschönau, Guntersblum, Hagen-Hohenlimburg, Hattingen, Heiden, Hengersberg, Herzberg/Elster, Heusenstamm, Heusweiler, Höchstadt, Illertissen, Ingelheim, Iserlohn, Kleinblittersdorf, Kürten-Dürscheid, Lahnstein, Langen, Langenzenn, Laufen, Legau, Lemgo, Lengefeld, Lenting, Leonberg, Leutkirch, Löbau, Luckenwalde, Malente, Markt Schwaben, Marktoberdorf, Meckenheim, Munderkingen, Münster-Wolbeck, Nahe, Neckargemünd, Nersingen, Neunkirchen, Neustadt, Neustrelitz, Nordkirchen, Nördlingen, Nottuln-Appelhülsen, Oberaudorf, Oberderdingen, Oberkochen, Oederan, Ottweiler, Paderborn, Pfalzfeld, Rantrum, Rees-Haldern, Rehau, Remseck, Rheinberg-Orsoy, Rheinfelden, Riedlingen, Rödermark, Rötha, Rüdesheim, Saerbeck, Sassnitz, Schelklingen, Schleiden-Gemünd, Schneeberg, Schönkirchen, Schwalmstadt, Selbitz, Seligenstadt, Simmern, Sonnenbühl, Sonthofen, Sprockhövel-Haßlinghausen, Steinburg, Steinen, Stockstadt, Stollberg/Erzgebirge, Strasburg, Sulzbach, Taucha, Tellingstedt, Tettnang, Tharandt, Thum, Treuenbrietzen, Trochtelfingen, Trossingen, Tuttlingen, Viöl, Völklingen, Waldkirch, Walzbachtal, Warburg, Wartenberg, Wassenberg, Weierbach, Wermelskirchen, Wiesbaden, Wolnzach and Wörth.

How the fast network is getting to subscribers' homes

The copper lines now running between local exchanges and street cabinets are being replaced with fiber-optic cables, which can support considerably higher transmission speeds. The existing distribution cabinets - the familiar large, gray roadside boxes - are now being converted into multi-functional cabinets. They now do the job of nothing less than mini-exchanges. In the multi-function cabinets, the light signal coming from the fiber-optic line is converted into an electrical signal, and then fed into the existing copper cable leading to the subscriber's access. Vectoring technology is used to make the connection to the customer faster. By reducing electromagnetic interference ('crosstalk') in lines, vectoring is able to boost bandwidth significantly. As of the second half of 2018, 'super-vectoring' technology will be implemented, and this will enable bandwidths of up to 250 Mbit/s.

Customers can find additional information about the upgrade status in their respective regions under www.telekom.de/schneller. Customers can also register at this URL to ensure that they are notified automatically as soon as higher speeds become available where they live.
