ANGA urges govt support for infrastructure competition

Monday 23 January 2017 | 10:49 CET | News
German cable operators' association ANGA has called for the government to support competition in the broadband sector. ANGA president Thomas Braun said Deutsche Telekom could not service the need for faster internet in Germany alone. As such, he urged parties in the next federal election to support infrastructure and technology competition in the sector. The "massive investments" of ANGA members into infrastructure have made the current level of service possible, he argued. Competing infrastructures ensure freedom of choice for the customer and enable sustainable competition, he said.
