Internet, television & telephone
The Internet network in Germany is neat. Compared to other European nations, the connection speeds can be slow in some cases. Therefore, before signing a contract, make sure you do a speed test. Due to the history (the DSL and cable network was both long owned by Telekom) DSL is widely used.
The improved VDSL standard enables better speeds. This has become necessary because the Telekom had to sell the cable network. Some providers now also offer Internet access via the cable network.
In addition to Internet, (almost) every tariff includes a landline connection. In addition, things like television can be booked.
