German cable operator Tele Columbus has announced that it has upgraded its fixed broadband networks to enable maximum speeds of 1Gbps for 224,000 households in Chemnitz, Frankfurt (Oder), Freital, Gustrow, Hoyerswerda Plauen and the surrounding areas. The company, which provides services under the brand name PYUR, states that in total 925,000 homes that are within its network footprint have so far benefited from the DOCSIS 3.1 rollout, with the technological upgrade expected to reach the ‘vast majority’ of its 2.4 million cable homes by mid-2023.
