Broadband expansion

Broadband expansion in rural areas is progressing successfully.

Deutsche Telekom has equipped 528 more nearshore areas with super-fast Internet in the second quarter of 2018. Customers in these areas can now enjoy speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s (megabits per second) for downloads and 40 Mbit/s for uploads. The roll-out focused on lines in rural areas. The current wave includes municipalities such as Waldkraiburg, Backnang and Isen. Around 260,000 households and companies are now connected to converted main distribution frames. By late 2020, Deutsche Telekom plans to equip around 7,200 nearshore areas across Germany with super-fast Internet.

The nearshore roll-out program is a key part of our broadband strategy. Major cities will follow in later phases", said Walter Goldenits. "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 technology in nearshore areas. That will enable speeds of up to 250 Mbit/s."

Note: In some cases, not all local loops in some local networks have yet been migrated. Customers can go to www.telekom.de/schneller (German only) to see whether they stand to gain from the expansion.

Nearshore areas
By early 2020, all 7,600 of Germany's nearshore areas will have been modernized. Deutsche Telekom 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.

Nearshore conversion in three phases
1. Customer migration to IP (Internet protocol). By switching customer lines to IP technology, all VDSL (Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line) customer lines will be completely freed from old analog components such as splitters, PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) or ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network). This is the only way to ensure the new technology functions nationwide and completely with IP.
2. Technology roll-out: The previously passive cable distribution box will be retrofitted with a new multifunctional cabinet. It offers space for the active outdoor technology, the new MSAN. In order for customers to benefit from higher bandwidths, they are supplied using fiber optic cables. This provides a direct optical fiber connection between them, the operating site and the next network element, the Broadband Network Gateway, or BNG for short. Thanks to the BNG, end devices can now work on plug-and-play and new products can be made available more quickly.
3. Technical migration. All customer lines in a given nearshore area are connected to the MSAN in one go. This completes the nearshore migration. Technologies such as vectoring and super vectoring can now be used.
