Germany's largest cable T operator Kabel Deutschland has increased the number of triple play customers in the business year 2010/11.

For the twelve month period, 1.38 million customers have signed up for internet and telephony on 31 March 2011 - a growth by 22.2% compared with 12 months ago.

The premium TV products - pay-TV and DVR - have 1.26 million customers, corresponding with an increase by 17.8%.

Kabel Deutschland invested 344.6 million - 21.5% of its turnover - into its cable network and customer acquisition. In the next two years, the company wants to upgrade another 1 million households for fast internet and telephony.

Half of its upgraded cable network already enables high-speed internet with a data rate of 100 Mbps through the DOCSIS 3.0 standard. More than 6 million customers can currently sign up for the high-speed service. The company wants to provide this service to 10 million households by March 2011.
