Teleste’s German subsidiary Cableway has extended its maintenance and upgrade contract with Kabel Deutschland (KDG) for another three years. The contract is worth around €50 million per year and is based on the existing two-year frame agreement that is about to expire.

KDG began outsourcing its cable maintenance services two years ago, allowing Cableway to emerge as the largest service provider in Germany with every major cableco on its books.

KDG remains the largest of all the German cablenets, serving 9 million connected households in 13 of the 16 federal states.
