Breko members to have 4.2 mln fibre connections by 2018

Wednesday 16 March 2016 | 17:40 CET | News
The German Broadband Operators' Association (Breko) has published the 5th edition of its Broadband Compass report, with a focus on fibre-optic network roll-outs. The report shows that over 80 percent of fibre-optic (FTTB/FTTH) network roll-out in German is currently being undertaken by alternative network operators. Breko carrier members account for 1.28 million, or around half, of the around 2.65 million direct DTTB/FTTH connections in Germany. It expects the number of ultra-fast fibre connections operated by alternative providers to increase to 4.2 million by 2018.
