Tele Columbus rolls out Gigabit fibre network

23 Jun 2016

Tele Columbus Group, Germany’s third largest cable operator, claims it has commissioned the country’s first residential fibre-optic network that offers maximum internet connection speeds of 1Gbps. Located in Markt Indersdorf, northwest of Munich, the high speed network is wholly owned by the municipality of Markt Indersdorf, and is a partnership with Kabel & Medien Service (KMS), a subsidiary of pepcom, itself part of the Tele Columbus Group. From launch, the fibre-to-the-home/building (FTTH/B) packages will offer maximum broadband speeds of 100Mbps, rising to 400Mbps from 1 August and 1Gbps by the end of the year. The length of the fibre-optic network currently stretches 930km and covers around 3,500 households and businesses in all 59 districts of the market town.
