Tele Columbus launches its new fibre network in Lenzkirch and Saig
- Telephony and high-speed Internet via broadband cable
- Bandwidth of up to 400 Mbit/s available
- Switch to fully digital radio and TV signals
Berlin/Lenzkirch, 13 March 2019. Close to 2,000 households in Lenzkirch and Saig (both in Baden-Würtemberg) can now enjoy high-speed Internet, fixed-line Telephony and TV entertainment in HD quality via their cable connection. The new fibre network allows for bandwidths in this rural part of Germany identical to metro areas.
In the context of the network upgrade, last year close to seven kilometres of new fibre lines were deployed, distribution boxes upgraded and cable sockets exchanged. "We are happy to announce to the inhabitants of Lenzkirch that the broadband era has arrived", states Enrico Kehding, Manager Cooperations at Tele Columbus. From now on tenants can order fixed-line Telephony and broadband Internet products with up to 400 Mbit/s of download speed. The fixed-line Telephony tariffs are available with a Germany flatrate. Besides the cable TV offering and premium content in HD quality, the new network allows for the first time access to advanceTV, the digital entertainment platform of PŸUR which enables access to maxdome and a broad range of blockbusters via transaction on demand. The switch to the new network brings another important innovation: the analogue switch-off and change to fully digital radio and TV signals.
As one of Germany's leading fibre network operators, Tele Columbus AG supplies more than 3 million homes via its brand PŸUR with high-speed internet including fixed-line and mobile telephony and more than 250 TV channels. All of this via a digital entertainment platform that combines linear TV with video on demand entertainment. To its housing association partners the Tele Columbus Group offers tailored models of cooperation and state-of-the-art services such as telemetric and tenant portals. As a full-service partner for municipalities and regional utilities, the Company is actively supporting the fibre-based infrastructure and broadband internet expansion in Germany. For its business customers the Group offers carrier services and corporate solutions on its proprietary fibre network. Besides its headquarter in Berlin, the Company has locations in Hamburg, Leipzig, Ratingen and Unterföhring/Munich. Since January 2015, Tele Columbus AG is listed on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock exchange.
