Telekom Deutschland, the domestic fixed and mobile operating unit of Deutsche Telekom (DT), has announced it has extended the deadline for telecoms companies and their end users to migrate their PSTN and ISDN connections to IP technology. Following requests from customers, the date has been postponed by two months, from 30 September to 30 November 2019.

Telekom began to convert all voice and data connections to IP in 2015 and by the end of 2018 around 15.4 million lines had been migrated, representing an overall conversion rate of 86%. The operator states that at the end of this year, the largest part of the process will be completed, with the remaining voice connections in the business customer segment set to be transferred in 2020.
