EC Orders Investigation Over DT’s G.fast Plan

Reuters reports that the European Commission(EC) has opened an in-depth investigation into Germany’s approval of Deutsche Telekom’s (DT) plan to use its existing copper wiring to connect homes and offices up to its high-speed fiber optic broadband network because it could harm competition. The telecommunication regulator BNetzA had approved in November 2015 a proposal from Deutsche Telekom to use vectoring technology.
