One router, two networks: hybrid connection
In fall 2014 we began offering our customers in Germany the hybrid connection, a combination of IP fixed-line and LTE mobile communications in a single fixed-line product. When customers require more bandwidth for their DSL connection, our hybrid service automatically activates LTE using a special router. This means that the transmission rates of both networks are added together. This is particularly useful in areas where we have not been able to offer broadband Internet via the fixed network to date.
In 2014 we became the first mass-market provider worldwide to offer this type of hybrid solution. Our offer has been available throughout Germany since 2015.
