Network modernization

A promise kept: For many years, Deutsche Telekom was only allowed to offer speeds of up to 50 Mbit/s (megabits per second) in development areas. This regulation is now history. As such, Deutsche Telekom is doubling speeds in these areas, to up to 100 Mbit/s. 110,000 households have benefited from this upgrade in the last four weeks. Uploading is also four times faster, – increasing from 10 Mbit/s to as much as 40 Mbit/s. The good news: Municipalities do not have to pay a single cent more for this extra speed. Residents do not have to deal with construction noise. The speed boost is achieved simply by swapping out cards in the street cabinets. Deutsche Telekom is picking up the bill for this retrofitting.

And the news keeps getting better: Starting in August, Deutsche Telekom will begin ramping up its 100 Mbit/s lines to up to 250 Mbit/s. And that won't cost local authorities a penny or mean more noisy construction work for local residents, either. This is a further step toward 1-gigabit lines.

"We are making great progress on expanding broadband in Germany", said Walter Goldenits, Director of Technology at Telekom Deutschland. "More and more people are using video streaming, playing games online, and working from home. Every month brings confirmation that we have the right network strategy to catapult Germany into the gigabit age."

Network modernization (IP migration) is also speeding up Internet connections. In the last four weeks, 275,000 additional households across Germany have benefited from these measures, and can enjoy lines with speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s effective immediately. The upload speed is up to 40 Mbit/s.
