Deutsche Telekom fibre plans?
August 26, 2011
Deutsche Telekom is planning a new subsidiary to look after high-speed fibre-optic networks and compete more effectively with the country’s cable operators in the high-speed access market, according to Financial Times Deutschland.
It says that the new company, FTTH GmbH, could employ up to 1,500 people in the medium term, beginning with several hundred in 2012. Deutsche Telekom has already announced about €1.5 billion investment for its fibre network. Telekom is rolling out FTTH networks in 10 cities, following the launch of pilot projects in Hennigsdorf, Braunschweig and Dresden last year.
