Cable internet gaining popularity in Germany





German cable companies increased their number of internet subscribers to 1.85 million in 2008 an increase of 87% compared with the previous year (0.99 million), German cable association Verband Deutscher Kabelnetzbetreiber (ANGA) announced in Bonn.

The number of telephone customers grew 90% from 790,000 to 1.5 million. Compared with ADSL providers, however, which currently have 21.2 million subscribers, cable operators are still lagging considerably behind their competitors.

In addition to households which are opting for the first time for broadband internet, cable companies are also winning customers who previously had an ADSL connection. ANGA attributes this mainly to the low price and affordability of cable operators triple play offers comprising TV, internet and telephone. Cable networks also offer up to 32 Mbit/s, twice as much speed as the 16 Mbit/s achievable with ADSL2+.

The new standard DOCSIS 3.0, which will be introduced in the course of the year, will allow a speed of over 100 Mbit/s via cable. In addition to this, broadband internet via cable is also available in many regions where there is no ADSL availability.

In 2008 cable companies invested 750 million in upgrading their networks for triple play services, with another 700 million planned for this year.
