Deutsche Telekom has connected another 22,000 households of housing company Deutsche Annington in the federal state North-Rhine Westphalia to its cable TV network over four days.
Tenants now receive their basic cable TV service from Annington subsidiary Deutsche Multimedia Service which obtains the signal from Telekom.
Following the switchover of 20,000 households in February 2013, a total of 42,000 Annington apartments are now served by Telekom. 55,000 flats will be hooked up to Telekom's network by early 2014.
Telekom offers the households a complete TV and telecommunications proposition containing free-to-air TV, pay-TV, HDTV, Internet and telephony.
The collaboration is based on the partnership agreement signed by Annington and Telekom at the end of 2011. The company, which is one of Germany's largest housing associations with around 220,000 leased or leased or administered apartments, previously obtained the basic TV service for its flats from cable operator Unitymedia.
