- Book more speed from Deutsche Telekom
More than 118,000 households in 102 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. A partial list: Bönen with 7,156 households, Hechingen with 6,947 households, Giengen an der Brenz with 6,616 households, Ettenheim with 6,407 households, Dorsten with 4,796 households, Iserlohn with 3,583 households, Herbrechtingen with 3,300 households, Traunstein with 3,171 households, Treuchtlingen with 2,997 households, and Boizenburg with 2,779 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 population centers; 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 tens of thousands of households, while others benefit just a handful. For us, every line counts. It doesn’t matter if it’s in Ausleben, Fellheimor, or Moorenweis or in Sachsenheim, Schweich, or Wulfen.” No other company is investing as much in broadband expansion in rural areas as Deutsche Telekom.

Deutsche Telekom's network in figures
Deutsche Telekom invests around five billion euros every year and operates Europe’s largest fiber-optic network, which is over 500,000 kilometers in length. Broadband build-out is at the top of the company's agenda; in 2017, Deutsche Telekom installed some 40,000 kilometers of optical fiber. In 2018, this figure will increase to 60,000 kilometers. Our closest competitor has barely managed 60,000 kilometers.
