Smart network management
The task of maintaining and building out the network is a central part of our intelligent network management. This network management effort is guided both by the technological opportunities available and by the customers’ wishes. It forms part of Deutsche Telekom’s core competencies. The ultimate goal is to make the network ready for the gigabit society. The groundwork to reach this goal is provided by Deutsche Telekom’s own constantly growing fiber-optic network. After all, the nodes that link the customers to the core network need to be connected using optical fiber. Then data will travel smoothly at very high speeds.
Actively working all over Germany
The figures reveal yet another of Deutsche Telekom’s strengths. The business is making far more effort in Germany than any other provider. From north to south and east to west, from the big cities to the smallest communities, people everywhere are reaping the benefits of Deutsche Telekom’s efforts. In only the last four weeks, for example, cities including Bamberg, Bonn und Hamburg have been provided with several thousand lines, with municipalities like Schlüchtern, Strehla and Tönning benefiting from several dozen new internet lines during the same period.
