Deutsche Telekom has drawn a positive balance of its controversial broadband strategy. “We can open up in the coming days, 30 million Telecom connections for the high-speed age,” said the German head of the Telecom, Dirk Wössner, in a telephone conference.

could offer to keep In this house, the Telekom top speeds of 50 megabits per second up to 250 MBit/s. Of these, 1.1 million households with fiber-optic cable to be connected to the home to the network.

Possible, the progress had become only a massive investment in fibre-optic expansion. “Although it is spoken much of the old copper line, but de facto, we are investing Substantially in the Expansion of glass fiber.” Wössner refers this remark to the often-criticized fact that the majority of telecoms connections to the “last mile” from the control box on the roadside up to the apartment with the existing telephone cable. The Transmission on the copper cable is optimized to work with the technical procedures of the Vectoring and super-vectoring. The distribution box on the roadside is usually connected with a glass fibre grid.

you Had put the money in a direct fibre connection to the household (FTTH), you can only provide ten to 20 percent of the 30 million households with high-speed Internet, stressed Wössner. Super-vectoring, the have started, the Telekom a year ago, to reach to top speeds of up to 250 MBit/s. “Currently, we are able to achieve these speeds at around 23 million households.” The end of this year it will be 27 to 28 million households.

Wössner admitted that it was super vectoring a bridge technology. “Where we build new, we take optical fibre to the apartment or to the building.” The Expansion of the fiber-optic Connections to advance, would have to change framework conditions. So the cables should not be laid forcibly in the classical construction, is very expensive, but also above ground. In classic civil engineering in the Federal-wide average costs of around € 70,000 per Kilometer of glass fiber in the rule.

“We could use existing masts. So masts that are already in place, upgrade and upgrade. Other countries do this consistently,” said Woessner. When laying the cable underground, could also get cheaper methods, such as the so-called Trenching. In the process, narrow trenches or slots in the ground or Asphalt milled, they’re not quite as deep as the classic civil engineering for power, or sewage lines.

a need for improvement Wössner also looks at the networking of the apartments. With modern mesh networks (“Mesh”) may arrive the high bandwidth in every corner of the apartment.
