- Deutsche Telekom continues nationwide roll-out of fiber-optic lines in business parks
- Best infrastructure for the digital transformation, with bandwidths of up to 1 Gbit/s
- This year, 33 communities will benefit from the roll-out
This year, Deutsche Telekom will mark the second phase of the roll-out of fiber-optic lines in business parks that it announced last year, with 7,600 enterprises gaining Internet connections offering speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s. “Business parks are at the heart of our fiber-optic build-out strategy. We are thinking nationwide, urban and rural, north, south, east and west. The decisive factor for us is customer demand, and we are pleased to be able to offer our business customers fiber-optic lines in a further 33 communities across the country,” says Hagen Rickmann, Director for Business Customers at Telekom Deutschland.
The German towns and cities whose business parks are being upgraded include: Amberg, Bielefeld, Bochum, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Cologne, Dippoldiswalde, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Flörsheim, Frankfurt, Frechen, Großbeeren, Hamburg, Hermsdorf, Hildburghausen, Hürth, Kelkheim, Kriftel, Langen, Leipzig, Lindlar, Lübeck, Mannheim, Markkleeberg, Nienburg, Oldenburg, Pinneberg, Planegg, Potsdam, Sandersdorf-Brehna and Seevetal.
“We will execute this project quickly and supply the businesses with ultramodern technology, offering them the best infrastructure for the digital transformation. The build-out continues, and our interim goal is to connect 3,000 business parks across Germany to our fiber-optic network (FTTH).”
In the course of the current project, Deutsche Telekom will lay almost 500 kilometers of fiber-optic cables and link the company locations directly to the fiber-optic network. In all 33 towns and cities Deutsche Telekom is using the microtrenching technology, a method that is sustainable and also saves time and money during construction, making it less burdensome for residents.
Companies that decide early on to switch to Deutsche Telekom’s fiber-optic network in the business parks will be connected at no additional charge. The range of fiber-optic rate plans runs from asymmetric 100 Mbit/s business customer lines through to symmetric 1 Gbit/s lines.
Deutsche Telekom invests around five billion euros every year and operates Europe’s largest fiber-optic network, which is over 450,000 kilometers in length.
