Deutsche Telekom said that an additional 750,000 households in Germany obtained access to faster internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps in November as the company proceeds with its network upgrade plans. A total of roughly 4.25 million households in 50 cities across Germany now have access to an internet connection with download speeds of 100 Mbps and upload speeds of 40 Mbps.

Telekom said it increased broadband speeds in these regions through the conversion to IP-based connections and by upgrading its copper wiring through vectoring. Households in the most recent round of upgrades were largely located in Berlin, Munich and Stuttgart. 

Other cities in Germany that have already been upgraded include Hamburg, Freiburg, Frankfurt, Essen, Bremen and Dresden.
Telekom expects that it will upgrade another 1.75 million households by February 2018 as the company moves towards its goal of supplying 80 percent of households in Germany with speeds of at least 50 Mbps as quickly as possible.
