Deutsche Telekom’s 5G expansion is continuing in the summer: Thousands of additional antennas should be using 5G by the end of the week.


This week, the 5G expansion of Telekom is going one step further: Around 15,000 additional antennas are to use 5G by the end of the week. Telekom technicians updated the antennas with an update for 5G.

Large cities like Nuremberg and Hanover are included. But 5G also works in more rural areas such as Schwanebeck in the Harz or Westerland on Sylt – and the Movie Park in Bottrop is also there.

Telekom uses different frequencies for its 5G expansion: The focus is on the frequency bands 2.1 GHz and 3.6 GHz. According to today’s announcement by the provider, this makes sense, since both complement each other well in terms of range and speed. The 15,000 new 5G antennas broadcast on the 2.1 GHz frequency. In rural areas, the network is said to be able to achieve more than twice the speed. Customers should be able to surf at up to 225 Mbit / s. In cities, the network reaches a peak of 600-800 Mbps.

The 5G expansion will continue in the coming weeks. As early as July, Telekom plans to supply half of the population in Germany with 5G.
