Telekom upgrades broadband speeds for 750,000 more homes

6 Dec 2017

Telekom Deutschland, the domestic fixed and mobile operating unit of Deutsche Telekom (DT), has expanded its VDSL and Vectoring networks to an additional 750,000 homes, enabling customers in the upgraded areas to access maximum download speeds of 100Mbps. The latest expansion brings the total number of households within Telekom’s upgraded footprint to 4.25 million in 50 cities, and the Bonn-based telco says that a further 1.75 million homes will follow by February 2018. The speed increases were made possible by the telco’s IP conversion and the rollout of vectoring technology, which has also enabled upload speeds of 40Mbps. Major cities that have so far benefited from the network upgrade work include Aachen, Berlin, Dortmund, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig, Munich, Nuremberg and Stuttgart.
