One fine body…
The German Broadband Association (BREKO) represents the majority of all alternative fixed line broadband network operators in Germany. BREKO members rely on future-proof fibre infrastructures and currently account for more than 60 percent of the competitive FTTB/H deployment.
Since its inception in 1999, BREKO has successfully advocated competition on the German telecommunications market. Our more than 290 members, including more than 170 city and regional carriers as well as municipal utilities, provide urban as well as rural areas, the so-called "white spots", with high-performance fibre access. To this end, they invest more than EUR 1.5 billion every year. BREKO companies thus make a major contribution to the comprehensive fibre deployment in Germany as well as to the achievement of the German Federal Government’s broadband targets.
BREKO members are willing and prepared to continue their significant investments in order to establish fibre as the proper foundation for digitisation and to pave the way for Germany towards the Gigabit Society. BREKO is committed to achieving this goal by providing expert knowledge on adequate political and regulatory framework conditions. Consequently, the leading German fibre association has positioned itself with a clear infrastructure target of comprehensive coverage of fibre access providing at least 1 Gbps by 2025.
BREKO has evolved into a strong union consisting of the BREKO Association, the BREKO Purchasing Group, and the BREKO Service Company. Within this union, we join the forces of our members to strengthen competition on the German telecommunications market!
