German regulator clears path for Telekom-EWE joint venture

Thursday 9 August 2018 | 22:37 CET | News
National telecoms regulator the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) has said that Deutsche Telekom and EWE's proposed joint venture to build a fibre-optic network in northwestern Germany is not subject to the same set of regulations that apply to Deutsche Telekom alone, reported TelTarif.de. This clears the way for the two companies to invest up to EUR 2 billion to create over 1 million new FTTB/H connections for households over the next ten years, it said.
