NetCologne doubles cable broadband speeds to 400Mbps

17 Mar 2016

German regional telecoms operator NetCologne is set to double the maximum downstream speed available to its residential internet customers with the launch of 400Mbps broadband connections on 1 April. From that date, around 154,000 households covered by NetCologne’s own cable network infrastructure will be able to access the new high speed service, which offers upload transmission rates of 40Mbps. NetCologne, which is owned by utilities company GEW Cologne, operates predominantly in the cities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen, and their surrounding areas and municipalities. The launch follows the recent roll out of 400Mbps broadband connections by other German cablecos, including Tele Columbus and Unitymedia.
