Deutsche Glasfaser said it has connected the first households to FTTH in Mainhausen, Hesse. The firm reached the 40 percent take-up necessary to build the FTTH network almost eleven months ago. It will connect more homes in the coming weeks and all 9,000 people living in the town will get FTTH by autumn this year.
Customers will be able to watch high-resolution TV streaming, surf at faster internet speeds, and host video conferences in their home office by connecting to the fibre network.
Municipalities such as the town of Mainhausen receive support for building the network from the Breitbandburo of the federal state of Hesse.
