Enterprises with fast internet accessEnlarge picture

WIESBADEN - Not more than roughly one third (31%) of all German enterprises with 10 or more persons employed have had fast internet access in 2015. These are fixed broadband connections with a contractually agreed data transfer speed of at least 30 megabits per second (Mbps). The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that Germany is only middle-ranking in Europe and slightly above the average of all EU-28 countries (29%).
