Germany has one of the largest broadband markets in Europe. The dominant DSL platform is led by Telekom Deutschland which has invested in network upgrades in recent years and recently secured regulatory approval for wholesale access conditions on its vectoring VDSL program. Although the company continues to invest in fibre, financial and market considerations have encouraged it to pursue vectoring technologies to cover a large proportion of subscribers, and to trial G.fast. This strategy is aimed at competing with cablcos which are themselves investing in DOCSIS3.1 technology, as also at reaching broadband targets by 2020 and the more ambitious aim of creating a gigabit Germany by 2025.

Faster broadband is creating demand for new bundled services while intense competition has seen prices fall dramatically. Lower charges for local loop unbundling imposed by the regulator should also help increase competition and lower prices further.

This report profiles Germany's fixed and wireless broadband markets, together with forecasts to 2021 and an analysis of developments with related technologies such as FttP, powerline broadband, wireless broadband, Wi-Fi and internet via satellite. It also examines Telekom's Next Generation Network and the regulatory issues relating to competitor access to new networks.

Key developments:

EWE to invest more than 1 billion in fibre-based infrastructure to 2026; industry pressure to develop a gigabit society by 2025; government progresses with Digital Agenda 2014 - 2017 program to expand broadband services nationally by 2018; Telekom Deutschland expands vectoring VDSL; Unitymedia to launch 1Gb/s service based on the DOCSIS3.1 later in 2017; EC sanctions government's 3 billion investment in national broadband infrastructure; Vodafone rolls out competing VDSL infrastructure; NGA Forum adopts framework policy on the interoperability of broadband networks; report update includes the regulator's market data for 2015, VATM market data for 2016, telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.
