TD deploys new VDSL connections ahead of vectoring rollout

19 Nov 2013

Telekom Deutschland (TD), the domestic fixed and mobile unit of German telecoms group Deutsche Telekom, has deployed VDSL networks in Albstadt-Ebingen, Bad Nenndorf, Hennigsdorf, Hosenfeld, Kalbach, Kevelaer, Loehne, Luebbecke, Neuhof-Hauswurz and Prenzlau. From the second half of 2014, TD plans to introduce vectoring technology across these networks, with a view to doubling broadband download connection speeds from 50Mbps to 100Mbps. Around 77,000 households in ten local networks will benefit from the rollout under the initial phase of TD’s vectoring plan, with the number of homes expected to increase to three million in around 100 local networks by the end of 2014 under the next stage. Alongside the introduction of vectoring, TD is aiming to double the number of homes covered by its VDSL network from the current twelve million to 24 million by the end of 2016.
