DARMSTADT, 4-Feb-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The ENTEGA Medianet to install super-fast fiber optic cables for the apartments in Darmstadt’s Lincoln housing estate. The technology will provide much higher bandwidths than a copper cable supply. With the fiber connections data transfers of up to 300 Mbit / s are possible and the residents of the former barracks area can, for example, download three times faster.

Dr. Marie-Luise Wolff, CEO of ENTEGA:

“Because bandwidth requirements and data volumes double on average every two to three years, residents are well prepared for the future with their fiber-optic cables.”

ENTEGA Medianet will connect 16 residential units and two properties in the Haardtring with to the fiber optic network. A total of around 30 kilometers of fiber optic cable will be laid to the houses and into the apartments (Fiber to the Home). In addition, ENTEGA Medianet will provide housing units with digital television and analogue radio services. Furthermore, ENTEGA Medianet and ENTEGA Energie can supply the new owners and tenants with Internet, telephony and electricity as well as other multimedia services.

ENTEGA Medianet, together with companies in the real estate sector, intends to realize further fiber optic connections in residential areas.

“We want to be more active in this area and to provide future-oriented living space with modern communication infrastructure,” added Dr. Marie-Luise Wolff.

Entega AG, based in Darmstadt, Germany, is a fast growing utility company with over 30 subsidiaries active in sectors and verticals like energy generation, energy trading, energy distribution, energy, telecommunications networks and drinking water supply.
