Deutsche Telekom Reaches 10 Million DSL Customers

Deutsche Telekom T-Home division welcomed its ten millionth DSL retail customer. With resale customers included, the company now has a broadband customer base with over 13 million lines.


In its domestic broadband market, T-Home took a share of over 40 percent of the new broadband customer market for the seventh consecutive quarter -- winning around 340,000 net new retail DSL customers.


Deutsche Telekom also announced plans to expand domestic broadband network, including further rollouts of VDSL. Deutsche Telekom has already upgraded over forty cities to the VDSL network. During a second phase of rollouts, another ten cities will be joining them this year. The company said it will soon be able to provide broadband coverage across 96% of Germany, including rural areas.


"Deutsche Telekom is aware of its responsibility for Germany, and is equipping virtually the whole country with fast Internet lines. At the end of 2008, we will be supplying 96 percent of all households with DSL, in over eighty percent of them with lines featuring speeds in excess of 2 Mbit/s. In concrete figures, this means that 400,000 more households will be connected to the high-speed network in 2008 -- a good 140,000 of them in areas that were previously without the service," Timotheus Höttges, member of the Board of Management responsible for T-Home Sales & Service at Deutsche Telekom.http://www.telekom.com
