- Book more speed from Deutsche Telekom
Almost 39,000 households in 74 municipalities can now surf faster on the internet. With the new network, they can make phone calls, go online, and watch television all at the same time. They can also stream music and video, as well as store data in the cloud. Maximum download speeds have reached up to 100 megabits per second (Mbit/s). Top upload speeds now reach up to 40 Mbit/s. The cities benefiting include Halle (Saale), with 5,800 households, Schmalkalden with 2,100, Bad Marienberg with 2,000, Cologne with 1,500, Laupheim with 1,500, and Remseck with another 1,500 households.
Deutsche Telekom aims to provide as many people as possible with fast internet access – whether they live in cities or in rural areas. “We’re not just building information superhighways between major metropolises and urban agglomerations; our network also extends to rural areas. We are the only company pursuing comprehensive broadband expansion,” says Tim Höttges, CEO of Deutsche Telekom. “Some of our build-out projects are designed to serve many thousands of households, while others benefit just a handful. Every line matters to us: no matter if it’s in Gündelsheim, Künzelsau, or Münchsmünster or in Schelklingen, Vöhringen, or Willebadessen.” No other company is investing as much in broadband expansion in rural areas as Deutsche Telekom.
