23 May 2016

Vodafone Germany has revealed plans to roll out LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) speeds of up to 375Mbps in around 50 cities across the country by the end of 2016, with coverage set to increase to all major cities in 2017. The UK-owned fixed and mobile operator has invested approximately EUR5 billion (USD5.6 billion) in the last two years to modernise and expand its network infrastructure nationwide, including in high traffic locations such as stadiums, shopping malls, train stations, airports, highways and along rail lines. At present, 87% of the population are able to access maximum mobile data speeds of 225Mbps and Vodafone boasts around 7.7 million LTE customers. In addition, around 13 million German households now have access to maximum cable broadband speeds of 200Mbps and following the integration of Vodafone Germany and Kabel Deutschland’s infrastructure, the combined entity now claims a 400,000km fibre-optic cable backbone network.
