German regional telecoms operator M-net and its shareholder Stadtwerke Munchen (SWM) have completed the expansion of its fibre-optic network in five parts of Munich. The areas of Harthof, Hasenbergl, Messestadt Riem, Schwabing West and Obersendling are now able to access speeds of up to 1Gbps. Together with the already developed districts, M-net’s high-speed network now covers nearly 460,000 households in Munich.
As part of M-net’s first expansion phase, which was carried out between 2010 and 2015, SWM and M-net deployed FTTH/FTTB to around 400,000 households mainly within the Mittlerer Ring. The second expansion phase, which will bring an additional 230,000 households, has been underway since 2016. Once completed in 2021, 70% of all households in Munich will have access to a FTTB/FTTH connection.
