Host Europe is pleased to announce the launch of DSL services in Germany through a new partnership with Pironet NDH, one of its existing IP transit suppliers.

The new services, already available in over 64 cities throughout Germany, will be available through Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Lines (SDSL) with speeds from 144 Kbps up to 2.3 Mbps. This will allow Host Europe to provide cost effective, high-speed and ‘always on’ internet connectivity to its customers in Germany, allowing businesses to address both their hosting and their internet access needs through Host Europe.

SDSL connectivity is able to cope easily with functionality such as file transfer and access to a corporate intranet, which require high bandwidth in both directions. The service will be available for a fixed flat-rate fee, which includes internet connectivity, IP addresses and a router on the customer side.

Uwe Braun, Country Manager Germany, commented:

“SDSL technology enables inexpensive, high-speed digital transmission over regular copper phone lines. I am extremely pleased about our new partnership with Pironet NDH, because we are now able to offer high-speed internet access and hosting services to satisfy all the basic internet needs of our customers in Germany in house. The key to the new access services is that when purchased in a bundle with a dedicated server solution, they add significant value to our customers’ businesses.”
