“We welcome and support the willingness of Primevest Capital Partners and gustav to set up a future-proof broadband service here in Rahden. Use this opportunity for a future-proof Rahden,” says the Mayor Dr. Bert Honsel.

“It is especially important that the benefits of transitioning to fiber-optic technology are shared by everyone. It is particularly those who already have a somewhat better service in the city centre or in the small villages today but not in a future-proof manner, whose contract will contribute to the success of the full fiber-optic expansion, which is thus made possible for all rural districts”, emphasizes Dennis Kornehl, Managing Director of gustav internet.

This creates a sustainable supply network that already covers all future needs for bandwidth requirements and applications, even if the current internet speed on the older copper technology is still adequate. This is highly relevant in terms of the robustness of the connections (home schooling, home office, numerous video and cloud applications) and not least in terms of a property valuation on sale or when there is a generation change.

Participation in public life is made possible for all generations even for senior citizens with video conferencing, TV on demand, telemedicine applications, etc. In addition, the prospect of a comprehensive fiber-optic network will, for the first time, enable the community to address many new opportunities and achieve many aspects in the digital community.

The aim of all cooperating partners is to build a comprehensive Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) fiber-optic network across the entire city of Rahden, thus enabling all citizens to access the fiber-optic network,” adds Klaus Leckelt, Senior Acquisitions Manager at Primevest Capital Partners.

Product contracts can be submitted to gustav internet either by post, email scan, or on site to EP Hauke. Feel free to talk about the project to your city councillors, and local leaders in the individual neighbourhoods of the city.
