Deutsche Telekom sets fibre-optic infrastructure charges
January 19, 2010
Deutsche Telekom has applied to the German Federal Network Agency to approve the charges for use of three elements of its fibre-optic infrastructure. The Group is offering access in multi-function cabinets for a monthly unit price. Telecommunications companies who use slots in the multi-function cabinet pay a corresponding portion of the unit price.
Niek Jan van Damme, Member of the Board of Management of Deutsche Telekom AG responsible for Germany: “We have developed a simple, transparent and fair pricing model. This makes it easier for our competitors to calculate their broadband investments. There is no doubt that Germany needs more fibre-optic infrastructure, but competitors must also contribute to the expansion.”
