Deutsche Telekom commissions new mobile base stations.

Deutsche Telekom is driving forward network expansion in Germany faster than any other company. It is doing so with fixed-network and mobile communications, in urban centers and rural areas. In January and February 2019, 279 new mobile communications locations were put into operation. Deutsche Telekom aggregated and modernized the network, and filled gaps. What makes it special is that all of these base stations were covered by LTE for the very first time. This means that around 171,000 additional customers can use Deutsche Telekom's LTE network. With this, population coverage now stands at 97.6 percent.

“With our focus firmly on 5G, we cannot afford to ease up on mobile build-out,” says Walter Goldenits, Chief Technology Officer at Telekom Deutschland. “LTW will remain the basis for further development of the mobile communications network for years to come. We must therefore continue to pursue the rollout of LTE so we can provide our customers with the best possible network, anytime, anywhere wherever possible.

Outlook for mobile communications

Deutsche Telekom will raise the number of mobile base stations in Germany from 29,000 currently to 36,000 in 2021. The LTE expansion will help Deutsche Telekom fill coverage gaps in mobile communications and increase bandwidths. Population coverage is set to increase to 98 percent in the coming year.

This expansion is an important component for the future 5G network. 5G is the standard for communications in the future. It combines fixed-network and mobile communications. Deutsche Telekom is playing an important role in the development of this global standard.
