Glasfaser Nordwest is beginning construction on a new fibre network in Minden, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. 

The infrastructure project will take place across 5,800 households and business locations in Minden Rodenbeck  and Minden Dützen-Bölhorst. The network will consist of many underground main cables and various nodes and the fibre will end at the property, rather than at a cabinet. It will be connected once the interested party subscribes. 

In addition, since classic copper cables are completely dispensed with, the new network can deliver stable bandwidths even over longer distances. This means, says the company, that residents in the development area will be able access speeds of up to 1,000Mb/s. The network is expected for completion next year.      

Christoph Meurer, managing director at Glasfaser Nordwest, which is a joint venture between Deutsche Telekom and Ewe, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to make a real contribution to the digitisation of the city with this project. The new FTTH network brings a lot of future security. From the outset, are  bandwidths of up to 1,000Mb/s.’ 

Added the Mayor, Michael Jäcke: ‘The city of Minden attaches great importance to the comprehensive expansion of fibre optics. We have anchored this in our business development concept since 2015. The fact that the districts of  Rodenbeck, Dützen and  Bölhorst  will "go online" from Summer 2022 is an important step towards the future. Minden should continue to grow and be in demand both as an attractive place to live and as a business location for companies.’
