Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Glasfaser will jointly use a single fiber-optic network. For a pilot project in Lüdinghausen in North Rhine-Westphalia, Coesfeld district, Deutsche Glasfaser will open up its existing network for use by Deutsche Telekom. The collaboration expands offerings for all end customers. With this cooperation, Deutsche Telekom has the possibility to use optical fiber between the main fiber-optic distribution frame and the customer's building, thus offering its complete product portfolio. These offers are also valid for households in Deutsche Glasfaser's rollout area in Lüdinghausen that do not have an fiber to the home line yet. Deutsche Glasfaser will retrofit these home connections accordingly.

Deutsche Glasfaser has laid more than 9,000 fiber-optic lines in the City of Lüdinghausen and its individual city districts, which means many households are already surfing at the speed of light. Deutsche Telekom is now entering this market with additional offerings.

Lüdinghausen is the first pilot project by both providers to pursue open access – gaining access to fiber-optic networks through the main fiber-optic distribution frame. The pilot area in Lüdinghausen includes both private households and business parks. Deutsche Telekom intends to offer fiber-optic-based products to its customers starting this year (2020).

Based on their experiences in Lüdinghausen, the two companies plan to evaluate further collaboration projects in other municipalities.
