Telekom extends 100Mbps footprint to 200,000 additional homes

13 Mar 2018

Telekom Deutschland, the domestic fixed and mobile operating unit of Deutsche Telekom (DT), has enabled VDSL vectoring for a further 200,000 households, allowing it to offer customers in the upgraded areas maximum download speeds of 100Mbps. The latest network expansion covers a total of 209 cities and communities, including Bochum-Wattenscheid (13,300 homes), Leonberg (7,500) and Paderborn (12,200), and by the end of June 2018 the number of 100Mbps-capable households will reach seven million. The speed increases were made possible through the operator’s IP conversion and the rollout of vectoring technology, which has also enabled upload speeds of 40Mbps. From the second half of 2018, Telekom will begin deployment of super vectoring to enable bandwidths of up to 250Mbps.
