Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 17:29 CET | News

Deutsche Glasfaser said it won a contract to supply a total of 909 addresses, including households, firms and institutions, with fibre in Moenchengladbach by 2020.  

In the coming months, Deutsche Glasfaser will deploy fibre over a distance of more than 160 km. The company is already building around 8,500 connections for private customers and 650 for firms in business parks in the city.  

The goal is to supply addresses with speeds of at least 30 Mbps download by expanding the network. The project is subsidized with public money. The funding amounts to around EUR 7.4 million, with 50 percent provided by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), and the rest from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia through the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
