Community: 80 percent want glass fiber to the house

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 | Gadgets

In the municipality of Herzlake in the district of Emsland in Lower Saxony, the expansion of the fiber-optic network by EWE has begun successfully. As reported by the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, Gerd Niemann reports that more than 80 per cent of households have already opted for a fiber-optic home connection.

The network operator EWE has around 1,300 households connected. According to Niemann EWE plans to be able to switch the first connections for fast Internet in the first quarter of 2018.
Niemann said: "We are using modern laying techniques for our expansion, which means that no major construction work is required in the front yard for a house connection, there are only two very small holes that need to be tied up."
At the end of last year, EWE had announced plans to invest over € 1.2 billion in the expansion of fiber-reinforced house connections in the coming years. "The demand for house connections is already very high in other areas in which we are expanding, and the citizens are asking for this future-proof upgrade, which guarantees very high and stable bandwidths," said company spokesman Gerd Lottmann Golem .de on request.

Since June 2017, the operator has also offered Internet access with a data transfer rate of 1 Gbit / s for private customers. The Gigabit product costs 199.95 Euros per month and offers up to 200 MBit / s upload bandwidth. Customers ordering the Gigabit product receive the fiber-optic connection without additional costs. EWE operates in Lower Saxony, Bremen, Bremerhaven, Brandenburg and Ostwestfalen-Lippe.

This year, EWE is pushing ahead with the expansion of glass fiber house connections in some 90 cities and municipalities in the counties of Aurich, Cloppenburg, Cuxhaven, Diepholz, Emsland, Grafschaft Bentheim, Harburg, Leer, Oldenburg, Wittmund and Steinfurt and Bremerhaven.
