Tele Columbus successfully completes the first construction phase of the fibre network in the district of Plön

Berlin, 08 July 2019. After 18 months of construction works, the first and largest part of the fibre network in the district of Plön (Schleswig-Holstein province) was successfully completed. As a result, in 21 communities of the southern part of the district, high-speed internet with up to 1 Gbit/s bandwidth is available for the first time. Pepcom GmbH, a subsidiary of Tele Columbus AG, markets the internet & telephony products on the network of the communal authority via its brand PŸUR. When completed by end of 2019, the network will reach around 12,000 households in 46 communities on the Baltic coast of Schleswig-Holstein.

The first construction phase contained more than 210 kilometers of fibre lines connecting around 4,500 households with the central point of presence (PoP) in Pohnsdorf. All connected buildings have a direct fibre connection (FTTH) enabling broadband speeds of up to 1,000 Mbit/s. Furthermore, network capacity can easily be upgraded in line with rising data consumption, without further construction works. Retail customers demanding less broadband speeds can choose between the reasonably priced 60 Mbit/s or 120 Mbit/s products of PŸUR, already including the German telephony fixed-line flat rate.

More than 1,000 of the households in the first construction phase already actively use their connection, whereas the remaining households will be active once their optical network termination device (ONT) is installed and the telephony number is ported by the former service provider. Meanwhile, groundworks in the second part of the network are nearly completed and running at full steam in the third and fourth of the construction stages. Until year-end, the network will be nearly completed and in the first quarter of 2020, all customers will be able to use it.
