German cable operator Kabel Deutschland has started testing new super-fast internet services, capable of delivering 1.17Gbps downstream.
The field trail in Hamburg is being conducted in partnership with Cisco. KDG already offers its DOCSIS 3.0-based 100Mbps service in Hamburg. According to the company, its field trail has shown that it is possible to deliver speeds in excess of 1Gbps over an 862MHz HFC network.
KDG chief technology officer Lorenz Glatz said that it would be several years before web applications and content could be accessed via 1Gbps services but that the growth in demand for bandwidth meant it was a question of when, rather than if, such services would be launched.Â
