68% of our internet users have transfer rates up to 30 MBit/s, 40% up to 50 MBit/s. Vectoring technology improves our rates so far. However, some users do not reach these rates due to distance to the only distribution station in Lindenstraße.


The Eifelkreis Bitburg-Prüm is working on NGA - Next Generation Access- to provide a minimum of 50 MBit/s for each household. Therefore, the Herforst Community will be eqipped with 2 additional distribution stations connected by fiber cable to the main station next to the traffic lights. This allows speed rates up to 50 or 100 MBit/s. Super vectoring will improve speed up to 250 MBit/s.


This requires an upgrade of users' internet contracts with their particular  provider. Construction works will start in autumn and will most likely be completed beginning of 2020.
