Part of our network strategy is to also systematically build out our mobile networks with 4G/LTE technology to increase transmission rates in all national companies. Thanks to investments in our 4G/LTE network, our customers enjoy better network coverage with fast mobile broadband. In 2019, for example, we were already providing approximately 98.1 percent of the population in Germany with LTE coverage and 98 percent in Europe. This puts us right on schedule to reach our goal of 99 percent network coverage by 2020.
Furthermore, around 31 million households in Germany can already order a rate with up to 100 Mbit/s on our fixed network. This figure keeps growing daily, as can be followed in our online expansion tracker.
Information regarding the 5G expansion can be found here.
