Customers in Germany are still often unable to reach the maximum broadband speeds promised by their internet provider, irrespective of the grade of broadband or the provider involved, said the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), Germany's national telecoms regulator, in its second annual report measuring broadband speeds in Germany. The Federal Network Agency took measurements from 437,192 fixed broadband connections and 245,143 mobile connections between 01 October 2016 and 30 September 2017 for its survey.
