Unitymedia launches gigabit speeds in Bochum

9 May 2018

German cable operator Unitymedia has launched broadband speeds of 1Gbps in the city of Bochum in North Rhine-Westphalia, as part of its ‘Gigabit-City Bochum’ project. Around 90% (170,000) of households and businesses in the city are now able to access the high speeds thanks to the rollout of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard. In March 2017 Unitymedia revealed that it would deploy DOCSIS 3.1 in cooperation with the city of Bochum and local utility supplier Stadtwerke Bochum under the Gigabit-City Bochum partnership. The initiative will enable more than 95% of households and businesses in Bochum to access the high-speed service by the end of 2018.
