Ewe Tel welcomes calls to change vectoring decision

Tuesday 24 May 2016 | 20:13 CET | News
German telecoms operator Ewe Tel has welcomed calls from Olaf Lies, Lower Saxony's Economy Minister and chairman of the political supervisory board of the Federal Network Agency (BnA), for a revision of the agency's decision on vectoring on the local access network. The BnA recently approved plans for Deutsche Telekom to expand the last-mile network using only vectoring technology. Ewe Tel believes this decision is short-sighted and insists that only fibre networks can meet increasing demand for bandwidth.
