German industry association ANGA Verband Deutscher Kabelnetzbetreiber (ANGA Association of German Cable Operators) has changed its name to ANGA Der Breitbandverband (ANGA The Broadband Association).
The decision was made by the ANGA members following a recommendation of the board. With the name change, the association wants to take into account the constantly growing variety of its more than 200 member companies and the diversification of their products and technologies.
“Today, our member companies are active in all segments of the broadband industry. The product portfolio ranges from hybrid cable networks and pure fibre optic networks to IPTV, video streaming and mobile telephony,” said ANGA president Thomas Braun. “Our members come from all enterprise categories active in the broadband market: Family businesses and city network operators as well as broadband subsidiaries of energy suppliers and large telecommunications groups.”
With the name change, ANGA also intendeds to underline its aspiration to have a high-profile presence in all industry-relevant topics. The interdisciplinary teams in Berlin and Cologne and the international congress fair ANGA COM provide the association with ideal conditions to equally address the areas of broadband, media and technology, according to the industry association.
