Deutsche Telekom said it has been increasing connection speeds to up to 250 Mbps over the last four weeks for some two-and-a-half million lines.
The number of lines with speeds of up to 250 Mbps alone has grown by 2.4 million, reaching a total of nearly 14 million. The number of lines with up to 100 Mbps has been increased by more than 110,000 lines by retrofitting VDSL areas with vectoring technology. 25.4 million households on the Deutsche Telekom network can purchase rate plans with speeds of up to 100 Mbps or higher.
The task of maintaining and developing the network is a central part of our intelligent network management. This network management effort is guided both by the technological opportunities available and by customer wishes. It forms part of Deutsche Telekom’s core competencies. The ultimate goal is to make the network ready for the gigabit society. The ground work to reach this goal is provided by Deutsche Telekom’s own constantly growing fiber-optic network. After all, the nodes that link the customer to the core network need to be connected using optical fiber. Then data will travel smoothly at very high speeds.
