German telecoms operator Deutsche Telekom (DT) has announced the launch of fixed telephony and broadband device service packages offering the possibility to lease broadband/fixed telephony equipment. The service offers a range of packages at various monthly fees, starting at EUR1.95 (USD2.58). Prices are reduced the longer the end user leases the device, leading to savings of up to 80% in the fifth lease year. The telco’s portfolio of packages includes Speedport modems and WLAN routers, as well as the equipment required for the use of DT’s IPTV package, T-Home Entertain. The service packages have no minimum contract period and customers with no fixed line connection with the incumbent will also be able to use the devices.
