Continuing expansion of the fiber-optic network

Deutsche Telekom operates the largest fiber-optic network in Europe, covering a length of well over 500,000 kilometers in Germany alone. We are further expanding our fiber-optic network to keep pace with demand for higher bandwidths in the network. We use our expansion tracker for Germany to report on our progress.

To reach this goal, we are using FTTC img (fiber to the curb) technology with super vectoring and are expanding FTTH img (fiber to the home) as well.
