Tele Columbus and UNITAS sign prolongation agreement
Berlin, 16 July 2019. The Leipzig-based housing association UNITAS eG and Tele Columbus, one of Germany's leading fibre network operators, signed a prolongation agreement. In more than 4,500 households Tele Columbus will continue to offer high-speed Internet, fixed-line Telephony and a wide range of TV products on its HFC broadband network at attractive terms via its brand PŸUR. Moreover, 850 apartments will be prepared for a direct fibre connection (FTTH).
The relationship between UNITAS and the Tele Columbus Group stretches back to 1990. Over the years the TV offering increased from around 30 analogue channels back then to now up to 250 digital programmes, with many of them in HD quality via consecutive network upgrades. Broadband internet via the HFC network was introduced in Leipzig in 1999. Today all UNITAS premises served by Tele Columbus are able to receive download speeds of up to 400 Mbit/s.

"Tele Columbus will ensure that all premises of UNITAS have access to state-of-the-art infrastructure ranging from attractively-priced basic cable TV up to high-speed broadband internet and thereby meeting the demands of all tenants".
