Regulatory authority lowers requirements for flat rates

The RegTP (regulatory authority) has now significantly reduced the requirements for which the Telekom competitors must allow narrowband flat rates (ISDN/modem). So the competitor no longer has to connect 1622 local exchanges, but only 475 exchanges.

With the words '.. a step in the right direction' also welcomed AOL press spokesman Jens Nordlohne the decision of the RegTP. At present, Telekom is charging around 245 euros per month for a primary multiplexer connection that can serve thirty lines at 64 kbit/s each. So far nothing has been known about a possibly new price. Although there is currently a DSL boom in Germany, the demand for narrowband flat rates is unbroken. As Jens Nordlohne reports, AOL alone has 450,000 orders for such a flat rate, which unfortunately cannot be switched due to the current price situation. Even T-Online had to take its flat rate off the market last year for the same reason.
