German cable operator Unitymedia now also offers internet access with a data rate of up to 1Gbps in Mannheim and Heilbronn.
With the latest additions, the high-speed service based on the DOCSIS 3.1 is now available to a total of almost 1.5 million people across Unitymedia’s coverage area.
“The hunger for bandwidth continues. On average, the data consumption of a Unitymedia customer was more than twice as high as the average consumption of German users,” Unitymedia CEO Winni Rapp said in Cologne. “Only cable offers millions of people reliable access to these superior speeds. Cable is the first choice for the transition into the Gigabit society.”
In 2018, Unitymedia recorded 211,000 new internet, telephony and TV subscriptions, 65,000 of which were acquired in Q4 2018. As of December 31, 2018, 7.2 million customers booked nearly 13.3 million TV, internet and telephony services from Unitymedia.
Revenues in 2018 rose by 6% year-on-year to €2.5 billion.
