1&1 seals deal to use M-net’s fibre-optic access network

28 Jun 2017

German telecoms provider 1&1, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Internet, has reached an agreement with M-net to use the Bavarian operator’s fibre-optic network. The open access cooperation deal will enable 1&1 to offer fibre-to-the-building/home (FTTB/H) broadband connections to customers in Munich, Augsburg and Erlangen. The aggregator platform developed by 1&1 is based on an open access model, which makes it possible to connect and market existing fibre-optic home connections via a standardised interface to the firm’s own infrastructure. In Munich alone, M-net’s fibre-optic access network covers 390,000 households, with this figure expected to increase by a further 230,000 over the next four years.
