58 km of Dark Fibre for connecting 1,500 households.
The telecommunications provider bisping & bisping relies on DB's fibre optic infrastructure for the expansion in the area of the municipality of Gangkofen in the Rottal-Inn district. Since 2021, the company has been leasing around 58 km of Dark Fibre from us along the railway from Soyen to Hörbering. From Hörbering, the company expanded the last few kilometers to Gangkofen it self, connecting 1,500 households to the new fibre optic infrastructure. With the use of the DB infrastructure, the company saved a considerable part of the expansion, The project, which was planned for more than two years, was successfully completed in just one and a half years. The use of the existing infrastructure thus saved significantly costs and time. Incidentally, the connection from rail to the new network to Gangkofen took place within only eight weeks.
