The Telekom pays: "We hunt funk holes" for a rapid expansion of LTE


Germany is still a radio-hole country in many places – this is also because municipalities do not identify locations for antenna systems. With the action "We hunt the dead spots" the company now wants to close 50 dead spots. The process: municipalities should actively advertise in an appropriate position, telecommunications therefore promise to be independent of "market economy and considerations of radio technology" to sustain costs.

In Germany, there are many dead spots where suppliers do not grow

In the fight against radio holes, the suppliers in this country often fail in the missing positions for the transmitters – we could report in our article "Resistance in the land of radio holes: Telekom does not get LTE sites" in June on a specific case. Now the Telekom has the action"We hunt the dead spots"launched, which is exactly in relation to the most problematic sites that the communities experiencemove on to cooperation, Is a "new approach to the expansion of the mobile network", the Group.Infographic: this is what the Germans do on the netHere's what the Germans do on the net

According to the program, the municipalities will become "active partners in the expansion of our mobile network", says Walter Goldenits, Telekom Deutschland technology managing director. As a result, so far it has been customary for his company to decide alone on new locations and, above all, to take into account "market economy and radio-technical considerations". "That's why there are communities that fall repeatedly through the grid, and it is precisely to these communities that" we are looking for dead spots "," says the company.

Only with radio hole

Participation in the action is therefore that communities in their area can demonstrate an LTE radio hole. In addition, there must be a decision by the city council to build a site: "A place is also needed for an antenna on a roof or a free space for a tree," the telecom said. In return, the company undertakes to create and manage the technology required on the site.

counterpartGolemTelecommunications spokesman Markus Jodl further explains his commitments: "The cost of the 50 locations is borne by Telekom alone. We also pay the rent for the sites. There is nothing to give us. What we want is the willingness to place a site (city council decision) and help with implementation (approval procedure), because we also want to be faster than usual. "The company sets very ambitious goals: according to the survey, they currently want us about two years to operate a mobile communications site, but it is expected that the antenna sites in the selected municipalities will come into operation "by the end of 2020".
