Deutsche Telekom submits draft for vectoring upgrade

Monday 2 November 2015 | 10:34 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom submitted a draft for a specific offer to the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), which will commit the company to upgrading all close range main distributors with vectoring technology across Germany by 2018. BNetzA will examine the draft in a formal and transparent regulatory process by including all interested market agents. By offering an investment and expansion promise, neither a decision by the public authority nor a regulatory judgement by the BNetzA are anticipated.
