Description / Explanation

The scarcely populated counties of Waldeck-Frankenberg, Werra-Meißner, Schwalm-Eder, Hersfeld-Rotenburg of the Hessen and Kassel district established the company Breitband Nordhessen GmbH with the aim to facilitate full high-speed broadband coverage of households with special attention to businesses in the region with a minimum connection speed of 30 Mbps. The network will be deployed in “white areas” of broadband coverage in the region with 2000 to 2500 km of cable. This created the basis for a potential future upgrade of the network to speeds of up to 100 Mbps symmetrically.
