Deutsche Telekom has kicked off the network rollout for 5G in Germany. By the end of the year, some 300 5G antennas in more than 100 locations will be built and brought online.

The rollout is starting in six German cities: first, Berlin and Bonn, to be followed by Darmstadt, Hamburg, Leipzig, and Munich. In the upcoming 18 months, the 20 largest cities in Germany will all be connected with 5G. Deutsche Telekom is starting the 5G rollout in metropolises, continuing with the build-out of the network successively in less densely populated areas.

The first devices and matching rate plans for 5G are available now. Deutsche Telekom's first 5G smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will costs 899.95 euros in the Magenta Mobil XL Special rate plan. The new Unlimited rate plan offers unlimited surfing for 84.95 euros per month. 

The HTC 5G Hub works as a portable hotspot and can connect up to 20 devices with the network in parallel. The HTC device costs 555.55 euros in the Magenta Mobil Speedbox XL rate plan and is available now. This new rate plan is the first data-only plan with unlimited data volume, including 5G in future. It costs 74.95 euros per month.

At the same time, we need a clear regulatory framework and pragmatism from the authorities – particularly when it comes to questions regarding regional spectrum, local roaming, allocation of the auction proceeds, and the approval procedures – which takes far too long in Germany.

Michael Hagspihl, MD for Consumers, Telekom Deutschland
For our customers a new era will dawn with 5G: 3G has helped music streaming to its breakthrough, with 4G videos were added. 5G will take gaming and augmented reality into a new dimension.
