Asset priorities

GlasfaserPlus will build and operate the passive network infrastructure, while TDG will sell broadband products to end customers on the basis of a wholesale contract with GlasfaserPlus. Thanks to the “open access” model GlasfaserPlus makes its network not only available to TDG, but also to all other interested internet service providers on a non-discriminatory basis.

GlasfaserPlus aims to play a crucial role in accelerating the digitalisation of rural areas in Germany by providing households and businesses with access to a future-proof broadband FTTH network.  

GlasfaserPlus’s state-of-the-art infrastructure aims to enable users to have bandwidths of up to 1,000 Mbit/s.
