Different providers

There are more than 10 internet providers in Germany. The providers work hard to ensure that the country is well connected to the internet as well as making sure that their digital infrastructure is up to date.

The main internet provider is Deutsche Telekom, responsible for providing internet connection for millions of internet users. Deutsche Telekom has, with time, lost monopoly over internet supply. This is after a period of slow internet that saw the country lag behind in terms of internet connectivity among European countries.

Currently, internet providers are making great headway in ensuring that consumers have fast and reliable internet. They also make a point of making all connections affordable for everyone. There are different, competitive, plans for internet users to choose from.

The providers are also using different methods of providing internet. Deutsche Telekom, which primarily uses DSL has also started using Vector technology and IP conversion to supply internet to its users. While DSL is the main means of providing internet, providers are starting to explore other affordable and reliable means such as Cable, satellite and fiber networks.

Such diversity will ensure that Germany stays in pace with the rest of the world. There has also been an improvement in mobile networks, seeing as most people end up using mobile networks for internet access.

The government has also placed certain laws that declare internet connection a basic human right in Germany. It has ruled that the presence and lack of internet affect peoples’ lives since most Germans use internet on a daily basis. This mounts pressure on internet providers who need to ensure that all their customers have reliable internet at all times.

While things might look good for internet providers in Germany, internet providers need to keep an eye on internet technologies that make it possible for them to offer internet to their consumers.
