Tele Columbus AG and Telefónica Deutschland (O2) have announced the implementation of their 2019 wholesale agreement. From 21 July 2021, customers will be able to request and subscribe to O2 fixed-line products in the Tele Columbus network. In doing so, Tele Columbus AG is opening up its broadband networks and offering connected end customers the option of selecting products from different providers with peak bandwidths of up to 1,000 Mbit/s. The ability to market its products to the 2.4 million households in Tele Columbus's network allows O2 to reach more than 26 million households with fixed-line services through cable connections. Both sides hope to obtain new marketing momentum by cooperating. As a result, Tele Columbus anticipates higher penetration of IP-based services in its own network, with Telefónica expecting to strengthen its fixed-line business and improve customer loyalty through new bundled products.
