Deutsche Telekom announced it has received the commission to supply broadband internet to the Fraueninsel, the second-largest island in the Chiemsee, a large freshwater lake in Bavaria, Germany. Telekom said it will lay a 1,200-meter undersea fibre cable in the Chiemsee as part of the upgrade, which will provide gigabit-speed connections for 300 residents of the smallest municipality in Bavaria. Telekom said it could take up to 36 months to complete this project given its technical demands and in order to minimize disturbing the island's nature.
