DB broadband & M-net - partners since the very beginning.

Article: DB broadband & M-net - partners since the very beginning.

DB broadband and the Bavarian telecommunications provider M-net have been in partnership since March 2020. In the meantime, the two companies have successfully implemented four projects, with more to follow.

M-net now has access to over 110 km of fiber optics from Deutsche Bahn's infrastructure. For the fiber-optic expansion of Bavaria, the company leases dark fiber from DB broadband along the rail lines. From the railroad, M-net continues to run its own fiber optic cables to surrounding households and businesses or relies on cooperative ventures with other fiber optic carriers. As, for example, in an Upper Bavarian district town: Here, DB broadband had connected M-net to the railroad's own fiber optic network in December 2022 to enable a fiber optic feed of around 60 km from Munich into the local network.  On this basis, the fiber-optic provider offers Internet, telephone and HD TV connections for residential and business customers.

DB broadband markets the free capacity in Deutsche Bahn's fiber-optic network. This network covers around 22,000 kilometers nationwide. By 2027, DB's entire route network (33,400 kilometers) is to be supplied with optical fiber.

M-net has been supplying large parts of Bavaria, the Ulm metropolitan area and the Main-Kinzig district of Hesse with reliable communications technology since 1996. As a pioneer in fiber-optic expansion, M-net has been driving the expansion of its own fiber-optic-based broadband network for 15 years and today supplies over 500,000 active customers. The company offers everything from a single source: from high-speed Internet, telephone and mobile communications to networking and data center services for business customers and IPTV and cable TV solutions for the housing industry.

Dr. Christian Humpert, Chairman of the Board of Management: "In M-net, we have gained a strong and reliable partner at an early stage, whom we will continue to support in supplying fiber-optic services to Southern Germany in the coming years."
