Germany’s national telecoms regulator, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), said its measuring and auditing services identified and removed over 5,200 on-site radio interferences and electromagnetic incompatibilities in 2017. Roughly 800 of these disturbances affected security-related areas including aircraft radio and radio communications for emergency services, fire and police as well as railway radio. 

The agency said it also improved the data transmission rates of DSL connections for nearly 1,000 consumer households that had been slowed down by electromagnetic rays emitted by defective or inadequate network components.
