DeTe to supply 80% of households with 100 Mbps by 2018

Monday 10 August 2015 | 16:07 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom plans to reach 80 percent of households with broadband speeds of up to 100 Mbps by 2018, CEO Niek Jan van Damme told Focus. Currently 4 million households have access to 100 Mbps via vectoring, and in the future Telekom wants to offer 250 Mbps via Super vectoring. Van Damme did not mention a date for the introduction of this technology, as it still requires approval by the Federal network agency.
