Deutsche Telkom to rebuild network in areas hit by flood with fibre

Friday 17 September 2021 | 15:34 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom said it plans to build 14,000 fibre connections for households in the town of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler in Rhineland-Palatinate. A large part of Telekom's network infrastructure was destroyed by the floods in July. Telekom has now decided to rebuild the broadband infrastructure in the area with fibre-optic cable instead of copper cables. The network will enable in the future bandwidths of up to 1 Gbps. Telekom wants to install the fibre-optics directly in the houses as part of the expansion.
