Deutsche Telekom: Fiber-optic lines on way for almost 19,000 enterprises
When the build-out is complete in a further 62 municipalities, Deutsche Telekom will then offer the businesses top-speed Internet connections of up to 1 Gbit/s. This is the fourth tranche of the fiber-optic build-out in business parks announced last year.
"The digitalization of the economy is an opportunity and a challenge for Germany. The basis for the successful implementation of this is comprehensive broadband coverage.
"We are aware of this, and we are accelerating fiber-optic build-out for business parks in particular. We are continuing to push forward with broadband build-out on a huge scale, including 100 business parks this year. We are now moving into the pre-marketing phase for a further 103 business parks in a fourth wave of expansion," says Hagen Rickmann, Director for Business Customers at Telekom Deutschland.
In the course of the current project, Deutsche Telekom will lay almost 800 kilometers of fiber-optic cables and connect the company locations directly to the fiber-optic network.
Deutsche Telekom is using micro-trenching technology for the build-out in business parks in these 61 municipalities. This method is sustainable and also saves time and money during construction, making it less burdensome for residents. ■
