The expansion of high-speed internet connections in Germany has the potential to increase the country's gross domestic product (GDP) by billions of euros per year, according to a new study by the consultancy IW Consult on behalf of the Vodafone Institute. An increase in the number of pure fibre or fibre-coaxial gigabit connections in Germany by just 1 percent each year would contribute an extra EUR 1.5 billion to the country's GDP, found the study, entitled "On the Path to the Gigabit Society".
