Liberty Networks kicks off fibre rollout in underserved areas of Germany

6 Sep 2022

Liberty Networks Germany, the joint venture (JV) formed between Liberty Global and private equity firm InfraVia Capital last year, has announced that it has embarked on the rollout of its fibre-optic network for over 5,200 households in Rudersberg, a municipality in the Rems-Murr district. Liberty Networks is deploying fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks in underserved areas of the country under the brand name ‘helloFiber’. The 50:50 JV was formed in September 2021 and will initially target a small number of underserved municipalities. Liberty Global previously owned Unitymedia for over a decade, before selling the regional cableco to Vodafone in 2019, while independent private equity firm InfraVia specialises in infrastructure and technology investments.
