The Deutsche Telekom fiber-optic network is the largest in Europe, covering a length of around 575,000 kilometers in Germany alone. As global data traffic continues to grow rapidly, we are continuing to expand our fiber-optic network. To do this as quickly and efficiently as possible, we use planning software and modern deployment methods such as trenching. We use our expansion tracker for Germany to illustrate our progress.
To expand the fiber-optic network, we are using FTTC(fiber to the curb) technology with super vectoring and are expanding FTTH (fiber to the home) as well.
