The German telecommunications company, Deutsche Telekom, has announced increasing the internet speeds for 300,000 households as of July. Deutsche Telekom has stated that this move is part of its ongoing efforts to enhance connectivity across Germany.
Deutsche Telekom noted that an additional 230,000 households, bringing the total to 6.4 million, can now enjoy access to pure fibre optic connections, a technology known as Fiber to the Home (FTTH), which provides speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
According to Telekom, its network upgrades offer diverse options for households. The company said 36 million households can subscribe to tariffs with speeds of up to 100 Mbps or more. Over 29 million households can take advantage of even faster options, with tariffs offering up to 250 Mbps or more.
Since the start of 2023, over 1.6 million households have benefited from Telekom's expansion initiatives, providing state-of-the-art Internet access via Fiber. Deutsche Telekom now offers 6.4 million pure fibre optic connections across Germany, marking an increase from 6.2 million in June. As reported by TelecomTalk, Deutsche Telekom has announced increasing the internet speeds for over 277,000 households in June alone.
Telekom Deutschland emphasized the significance of this progress, stating, "We provide Germany with a fast and sustainable network. Our infrastructure brings people together and opens up new perspectives both professionally and privately. In this way, we make an important contribution to leading society into a modern, digital future."
Telekom's efforts are not only improving connection speeds but also helping to bring about a new era of digital innovation and progress throughout the country.
