NetCologne to provide 20,000 households in Cologne with gigabyte connections by year-end

Thursday 16 May 2019 | 10:01 CET | News

German regional operator NetCologne said it will provide 20,000 households with gigabyte connections in Cologne by the end of 2019. NetCologne is investing EUR 100 million to expand the network. The works are part of the project "Germany's most digital city".

In 2018, the company focused on providing faster internet to schools and firms at business parks, but in 2019, it is concentrating on private customers. Since January, NetCologne has started expanding the network for 100,000 households. Districts including Lindenthal, Wahnheide, Lovenich, Porz-Lind and Wahn will receive gigabyte connections by 2022.
