Reuters reports that Deutsche Telekom (DT) and Vodafone have agreed a fee to allow the latter to access the German incumbent’s VDSL network. The British company said that the cost of using the network would start at less than EUR30 (USD42) per month. DT has yet to confirm the price publicly but has stated that an agreement has been reached. The deal allows Vodafone to offer connection speeds of up to 50Mbps to households in 50 cities.
Meanwhile, in a separate but related story, Vodafone has confirmed it will rename its fixed line subsidiary Arcor as Vodafone on 1 August.
