Telefonica Germany said it has met the requirements of the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) in Lower Saxony, Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein. The company now covers 97 percent of the public in the three federal states with high-speed mobile communications via the 4G network. Telefonica has met the requirements of the regulator ahead of schedule thanks to a network expansion offensive and despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The Federal Network Agency set the end of 2020 as deadline to achieve the requirements.
