Telekom rolls out 1m fibre-optic connections for housing industry

11 Feb 2022

Telekom Deutschland, the domestic fixed and mobile unit of Deutsche Telekom (DT), has revealed that last year it concluded fibre-optic supply contracts for more than one million residential units in the housing industry. More than half of the contracts related to full fibre-optic expansion, with all households and commercial units receiving a direct fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) connection. For the others, the house connection point is first installed in the building basement and the fibre-optics are only laid in the apartment when the resident requests it. Alternatively, an existing cable TV network can also be connected to Telekom’s fibre-optic home connection as an interim solution.
