Telekom is against the flat rate decision of the RegTP
As we reported yesterday, the RegTP has urged Telekom to finally allow competitors to offer so-called narrowband flat rates (ISDN/modem). To do this, she lowered the requirements, which AOL called '..a step in the right direction'.
Now, of course, Telekom has also spoken out, and how could it be otherwise, of course with a completely opposite opinion. So the Telekom described the decision of the RegTP as a '..step in the wrong direction'. This view is justified once again that one now has to invest in narrowband instead of the more promising broadband technology. Telekom is of the opinion that with this action Germany would fall behind in international competition. In contrast, mediaways boss Steffen Müller was much more positive. There will be new attractive, non-time-bound tariffs that allow unrestricted access to the Internet. The private telephone companies, according to the private telephone provider VATM, also support the RegTP's decision and see the decision as an important signal for the industry. However, a prerequisite for this is a cost-effective tariff model that also corresponds to the market.
