The demand for optical fiber continues to increase. 4.4 million new connections have been added since the end of 2020. The federal government aims to provide half of all German households by 2025, and even 100% by 2030.
However, current geopolitical developments may push this goal somewhat into the background, so rapid expansion will be a challenge.
Exciting: Currently, 71% of fiber optic connections belong to alternative network operators, ie competitors of Deutsche Telekom, which is in fact the leader of the network.
