Deutsche Telekom has announced increasing the internet speeds for over 277,000 households in June alone. Moreover, the number of German households equipped with pure fibre optic connections, known as Fiber to the Home (FTTH), has surged by 200,000 during the same month, reaching 6.2 million households, according to the official release. The telecom service provider stated that speeds of up to one Gbps are possible in the areas with infrastructure upgrades.
FTTH Connections Reach Million Households
Telekom announced that high-speed internet infrastructure deployment has resulted in 1.3 million households benefiting from the expansion since the beginning of 2023.
"We are dedicated to providing Germany with a fast and future-ready network," stated Deutsche Telekom. "Our infrastructure brings people together and opens up new personal and professional opportunities. In this way, we make a crucial contribution to leading society into a modern, digital future."
High-Speed Internet Tariffs
According to Telekom, with the growing importance of FTTH technology, 36 million households can now subscribe to tariffs offering up to 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) or more, while 29 million households have access to tariffs with speeds reaching 250 Mbps or more. This wide range of options ensures that customers can opt for their internet plans according to their needs.
Earlier in July, Deutsche Telekom announced that it increased internet speeds for 245,000 households in May and expanded its pure fibre optic connection (FTTH) to reach six million households, enabling speeds of up to one gigabit per second. Telekom's efforts catalyze propelling Germany into a digitally advanced era as the broadband expansion continues.
