Having implemented DOCSIS3.0 technology earlier this year, German regional cable operator Kabel Deutschland (KDG) has announced the launch of maximum broadband internet download speeds of 60Mbps and 100Mbps in Hanover and Munich. Subscribers have the option of two packages bundling internet and telephony services with unlimited calling to domestic fixed line customers: the first offers 60Mbps broadband at EUR32.90 (USD43.55) for the first twelve months, while the second provides 100Mbps internet for EUR42.90 per month. The monthly fees will rise to EUR39.90 and EUR49.90 respectively after the first year. Existing ‘Internet & Phone’ customers will be able to upgrade to the DOCSIS3.0 services from the summer, by which time KDG plans to launch its 60Mbps and 100Mbps broadband in Berlin, followed by Dresden and Leipzig later in the year. As reported by CommsUpdate, KDG announced the implementation of the DOSCIS3.0 standard in February 2010. The company pledged to launch the offering in Munich, Berlin and Hanover within six months, before eventually rolling it out across its entire network.
