Deutsche Telekom to bring FTTH to apartment complexes

Deutsche Telekom (XETRA: DTE.DE) has begun construction on a Fiber to the Home (FTTH) project serving housing association Deutsche Annington Immobilien in Bochum.

When the first phase of the new FTTH network is completed in 2013, it will serve about 42,000 apartments in North Rhine-Westphalia with 200 Mbps data rates. A total of 171,000 apartments that are part of the housing association in 600 locations throughout Germany will be able to take advantage of the fiber network.

Thus far, Deutsche Telekom has been taking a phased approach with its FTTH deployment, having installed 160,000 households in 12 cities in 2011 with plans to roll out the service to another nine cities this year.
