Telekom wholesale flat rate
Telekom announced in a press release that it will be offering a wholesale flat rate based on the British model from December 15. For 30 ISDN channels (one S2M connection), a flat rate of DM 4800 is required.
Since the offer can be used by all 1600 switching centers in Germany, it will be possible for Internet providers to provide comprehensive coverage in the future to offer flat rates independent of frequency. Telekom is introducing the wholesale flat rate even before the date requested by the regulatory authority, which would not be until February 1, 2001. The offer per end customer is therefore well below the 80 mark limit required by the cartel office. So it remains to be seen what the companies will do with this Telekom offer.
