Consolidation of German cable market continues: Tele Columbus AG expands cable network portfolio by more than 30,000 households

Berlin, 3 June 2015. Tele Columbus, the third largest German cable network operator, significantly expanded its network portfolio in April and May 2015 with the acquisition of various small operators and cable networks: As part of several transactions, over 30,000 homes connected in Eastern Germany and Lower Saxony have been taken on and include the 18,000 homes connected announced together with the Q1 FY2015 results on 12 May 2015. Most of the households already have two-way capability and are therefore technically equipped for the provision of Internet and telephony telecommunication services via cable connection. The connection of the new holdings to the company's signal feed now enables Tele Columbus to extend the product range for the supplied customers in those networks and at the same time increase the marketing potential for its product spectrum of analogue, digital and HD TV as well as high-speed Internet and telephone services.

The newly acquired networks are well situated for this strategic development: They are mainly located in the company's core regions and therefore require little investment, in order to be able to offer the Tele Columbus Group’s product spectrum. The holding in Lower Saxony also provides a starting point for additional growth beyond the company’s core regions in East and West Germany.

About Tele Columbus

The Tele Columbus Group is one of Germany‘s largest cable network operators. Via its origins - individual regional cable network operators that were merged into Tele Columbus - the company dates back to 1972. About 1.7 million connected households in Germany use Tele Columbus' TV signals and, increasingly, digital broadcast packages, Internet and voice connections provided via high-performance broadband cable. As a national provider with a regional focus and a partner of the housing industry, the Group is present throughout its core markets Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia as well as in numerous key regions in western Germany. In tune with current demand trends, the company is upgrading its networks in a hybrid fibre-optic infrastructure for superfast Internet connections of up to several hundred megabits per second with the state-of-the-art Internet transmission standard DOCSIS 3.0. The broadband cable caters to the entire range of innovative media applications from analogous, digital and high-definition TV to high-speed Internet and voice connections to telemetry services, tenant portals and interactive services. Beyond merely transmitting signals, Tele Columbus uses its own product platform in order to actively increase the programme offering and to develop additional services.
