Telekom Deutschland (TD), the domestic fixed and mobile subsidiary of German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom, has been able to offer LTE speeds of up to 300Mbps in selected areas since 17 November. The company said the speed increase was made possible by using the 2600MHz frequency band in combination with its established 1800MHz 4G network to create more capacity for high speeds data transfer in urban areas, including: Berlin, Bonn, Chemnitz, Cologne, Dortmund, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Duisburg, Leipzig, Magdeburg, Mannheim, Potsdam, Rostock and Stuttgart. To experience 300Mbps LTE speeds, residential and business customers require a Cat.6 mobile device and a relevant 4G tariff, such as MagentaMobil L Plus, Data Comfort L and Mobile Data L and XL. TD says its LTE network, which uses frequencies in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands, currently covers around 79% of the population.
