Sep 01, 2005

Deutsche Telekom Thursday said it plans to construct a high-speed broadband network across Germany.

The German telecommunications giant said in a news release that its T-Com network will be connecting the country's 50 largest cities with broadband speeds up to 50 megabits per second by 2007. The company said that will allow 2.9 million households to be connected by the latest technology.

"Our vision is to give the customer access via one single line -- i.e. our broadband connection -- to the wealth of the multimedia world, using a range of devices," stated Deutsche Telekom board member Walter Raizner. "They will have easy access to superfast Internet, video, games offers, high-quality general entertainment and interactive learning," he added.
