KDG pushes 100Mbps broadband with new promotion

8 Feb 2011

German cable network operator Kabel Deutschland (KDG) has announced the introduction of new pricing for its DOCSIS 3.0 100Mbps flat ‘Internet & Phone’ bundle. The package is now available for a promotional price of EUR19.90 (USD27) per month during the first twelve months, after which the retail price will increase to EUR39.90 per month. At the same time, KDG has stopped marketing its 60Mbps flat ‘Internet & Phone’ bundle. The firm has also launched a 100Mbps internet package for corporate customers; ‘Internet Business 100’ is available for the monthly price of EUR24.90 for the first twelve months and EUR44.90 per month thereafter. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, KDG implemented the DOCSIS 3.0 standard to boost its broadband download speeds to a theoretical maximum of 100Mbps in February 2010. After implementation in Hamburg, Hannover and Munich in the second quarter of 2010, the cableco announced it had rolled out the 100Mbps service to a total of 570,000 households in the cities of Bremen, Kiel and Magdeburg in November 2010. At present, KDG offers its super-fast internet services in approximately 40% of its upgraded footprint. Before summer 2012, KDG is hoping to deploy the high speed internet access across the whole of its upgraded network.
