Tele Columbus launches high-speed Internet in Seelow
- High-speed access with up to 400 Mbit/s for the tenants of SEWOBA
- Internet, TV and Telephony by P?UR for a promotional 5 euros/month
Berlin, 6 September 2019. Today Tele Columbus and SEWOBA GmbH Seelower Wohnungsbaugesellschaft launched the city fibre network in Seelow. In around 1,300 households of the Brandenburg-based town tenants can access the high-speed internet connections of P?UR with up to 400 Mbit/s as well as telephony products.
The tender by SEWOBA GmbH Seelower Wohungsbaugesellschaft which aimed at expanding and upgrading the coax network to allow for future-proof broadband internet access was won by FAKS, a subsidiary of the Tele Columbus Group. "High-speed internet becomes increasingly important for a rising number of tenants and is a decisive criteria for choosing a location to live as it opens up new possibilities for occupation, education and culture", states Hans Peter Thierfeld. "Especially as a municipal company we take responsibility in ensuring a modern telecommunications infrastructure in the interest of all Seelow as a place to work and live".
Over the past eight months Tele Columbus and FAKS established a fibre connection of the Seelow-based buildings to the switching centre in Frankfurt/Oder. In total the Seelow-based network covers more than 30 kilometres of fibre and coax. The products offered under the brand P?UR reach from the entry level tariffs of 20 Mbit/s for sporadic emailing and web surfing. For heavy users we recommend the 200 or 400 Mbit/s tariffs which allow for data-intensive web applications like online gaming and video streaming for several family members on multiple devices.
