  • Deutsche Telekom begins roll-out in rural nearshore areas
  • Bandwidths of up to 100 Mbit/s (to begin with)
  • Major cities will follow in the next steps
Nearshore area

The first 423 nearshore areas (550 m around local exchanges) have gone live. 160,000 rural households surfing faster.

Deutsche Telekom is stepping up the broadband expansion in rural areas. Now that the first 423 nearshore areas (550 m around local exchanges) have gone live, approximately 160,000 households in Brieskow-Finkenheerd, Dautphetal-Mornshausen, Waldfischbach-Burgalben, Schwabsoien and Wyk auf Föhr can enjoy download speeds of up to 100 Megabit per second (Mbit/s) and upload speeds of up to 40 Mbit/s. "The nearshore roll-out program is a key part of our broadband strategy. That is why this successful start to the project is so important", says Walter Goldenits, Chief Technology Officer at Telekom Deutschland. The first phase will primarily connect rural areas that currently have connection speeds of at least 50 Mbit/s. Major cities will follow in later phases. "As the single network operator, we are building super-fast Internet infrastructure for our customers right across Germany." Over the next few years Deutsche Telekom will also implement super vectoring in nearshore areas. That will enable speeds of up to 250 Mbit/s."

Nearshore areas

By early 2020 all of Germany's 7,600 so-called nearshore areas will have been modernized. Deutsche Telekom alone plans to lay almost 6,000 kilometers of optical fiber in approximately 7,200 nearshore areas, as well as installing more than 30,000 new multi-service access nodes. Around six million households will benefit from the roll-out.

Each nearshore area covers an operating unit, the associated cable distribution boxes and customer lines. They are limited to a maximum cable length of 550 meters between the cable distribution box and the operating unit. Then there are the A0 lines. These are customer lines linked directly to the operating unit and not via the cable distribution box.
