Telekom Deutschland says it has built up 5G network capacities at 756 locations across Germany in the past twelve weeks, increasing coverage to more than 87% of the population. Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) has also been deployed to ensure that LTE services can also be used at these locations, with 4G capacity increases at 478 locations and with an additional 96 new LTE sites rolled out, increasing coverage to 99%.
‘We are pushing the pace with the expansion of mobile communications,’ stated Walter Goldenits, Managing Director of Technology at Telekom Deutschland, adding: ‘Currently, more than 32,000 locations are mobile in the Telekom network. In addition, we put more than 1,500 new locations into operation every year. There are also 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.’
