Telekom Deutschland, the domestic fixed and mobile unit of German telecoms group Deutsche Telekom (DT), has installed 5G at 75 locations across the country in the past two months. Thanks to Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), LTE can also be used at these locations. The firm adds that it created additional LTE capacities at 173 locations and installed 4G at 178 new locations, increasing population coverage to 98.7%, while 5G services cover 80% of Germans.
‘We are pushing the pace with the expansion of mobile communications. We currently have more than 32,000 locations in operation and we will set up more than 1,500 new locations every year,’ commented Walter Goldenits, Managing Director Technology at Telekom Deutschland, adding: ‘In addition, there are LTE and 5G expansions at thousands of existing locations. As part of our massive expansion activities, 5G will become the new standard in Telekom’s cellular network.’
