2 Sep 2005

Deutsche Telekom (DT) has revealed plans to invest EUR3 billion over the next two years upgrading large parts of its network to deliver very high speed broadband capable of delivering a range of multimedia services including high-definition television. DT’s plan involves deploying a high-capacity fibre-optic network covering Germany’s 50 largest cities by 2007, stripping out large parts of the old copper wire network in the process. The company is set to launch a pilot of the new technology, providing download speeds of up to 50Mb, in Hamburg and Stuttgart this month.
