Telekom and Vodafone conclude fibre contract

1 Jul 2022

Telekom Deutschland and Vodafone Germany have announced the conclusion of a new contract for the use of VDSL and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) connections for a period of ten years. Vodafone has been purchasing copper (VDSL and vectoring) connections from Telekom since 2013 and markets these services to its end users, but both companies reached a commercial agreement on the use of fibre-optics at the end of 2020. The corresponding product contract has been negotiated over the past few months and, following on from this, the pair have agreed that in addition to the existing VDSL/vectoring connections, Telekom will also provide Vodafone with access to its FTTH network for the first time, enabling it to offer its customers speeds of up to 1Gbps.

Around 34.3 million households are able to access speeds of up to 100Mbps from Telekom, while 27.4 million can subscribe to a 250Mbps plan and 3.6 million homes are covered by the firm’s FTTH network with speeds of up to 1Gbps.
