Breko accuses regulator of giving Deutsche Telekom monopoly for laying cable to buildings

Monday 27 April 2020 | 10:49 CET | News
The association of alternative operators, Breko, has criticised a decision by the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) about deploying cables from the basement of a building to the apartment. According to Breko, the decision by the Federal Network Agency gives Deutsche Telekom a quasi-monopoly in laying a cable to the building. The VDSL (Vectoring, Super-Vectoring) and fibre-optic connections into the building (FTTB) use the same copper cables in the last meters and interfere with each other.
