Over half schools, households in North Rhine-Westphalia can access gigabit broadband

Monday 14 September 2020 | 09:02 CET | News
More than half of the schools and households in North Rhine-Westphalia are supplied with gigabit-capable internet connections, two years after the launch of the GigabitGipfel.NRW program. Under the program, network operators agreed with the local government to expand the gigabit access for all schools and to supply all industrial parks with fibre-optic cables by the end of 2022. By 2025, North Rhine-Westphalia should have gigabit-capable networks that cover the entire state.
