Eltel wins an important FTTH contract in Germany

Eltel continues to strengthen its position as the telecom implementation partner to German telecom operators and international technology vendors, for Mobile Networks and for Fixed Networks.

A leading German teleoperator performs a nationwide FTTH (Fiber-to-the-home) program. The ambitious target is to offer fast Internet connection at 200 Mbps download and at 100 Mbps Upload. For the end-customer this means a fast Internet, TV in HD quality and telephony by using only one subscriber line.

In 2011 Eltel executed a similar FTTH project in Hannover. After a successful completion of the pilot Eltel has won other two major FTTH city contracts in Bavaria. The value of the new contracts is several million Euros. The scope of work is underground installation of fiber optic cable, build house connections, and reconstruction of the streets. The project shall be completed by December 2012.

Mobilization of the project is taking place with Eltel’s cross-border employee teams from Germany and Lithuania. “We had a very good start-up and co-operation, the performance of our participating resources is again excellent.” says Andreas Schober, Managing Director of Eltel Infranet GmbH.

“We also expect to win further contracts in similar fiber installation projects. We are well positioned to handle large and parallel projects nationwide in Germany. Our key strengths are extensive experience in cable line construction, dedicated professional project teams and flexible utilization of experienced cross-border workforces from other Eltel subsidiaries like Lithuania and Poland.”

Eltel has extensive experience in the German market as a provider of engineering, civil works and telecom implementation services for the leading operators, technology vendors, municipalities and authorities. The company has a decentralized organization with locations in Berlin, Coburg, Dresden, Hannover (headquarter), Leipzig and Nürnberg.
