Deutsche Telekom wins another housing market deal

Deutsche Telekom has strengthened its position as a supplier of TV services to the German housing market by striking a deal with ANTEC Servicepool to deliver TV and radio to about 33,000 apartments in the Hannover metropolitan area.

Telekom has been trying to expand its presence in the housing association market, a sector long dominated by the country’s cable industry. It earlier signed a deal with Deustche Annington to supply services in North-Rhine Westphalia.
For ANTEC Servicepool, Telekom will provide return-channel capability at so-called network level 3 and will deliver TV and radio signals to a handover point in the basements of ANTEC Servicepool’s apartment buildings.

“Whether it’s coaxial cables, copper cables, fiber optics or mobile communications – Telekom as a real technology integrator offers housing companies solutions which will last well into the future,” said Niek Jan van Damme, member of the board of management of Deutsche Telekom responsible for business in Germany. “We have taken another important step forward to position ourselves as a reliable and innovative partner in the housing industry.”
