Germany’s Slow Internet and the Way Forward


Germany is one of the most advanced nations in the world with a thriving economy and a high level of technological innovations. In terms of engineering, the country has achieved some of the highest feats in the world and is popular for its precision. Moreover, it is one of the major economic pillars of the European Union and supports the European Economy after rising from the ruins of the two World Wars.

In the 21st century, the most important part of the technology world, as considered by most, is the constant availability of fast internet. The reason behind this is that the world is connected with the help of the internet and it is a reliable and cheaper source of communication.

When it comes to the case of Germany, unfortunately, the country has a low internet issue that is not common in the European Union. Many people have complained about the slow internet speed in the country and that has halted the growth as well as the good user experience of the good devices that are present in the country.

According to experts, Germany needs to invest quite significantly in the development of high-speed internet distribution all over the country. The ones who are hit the worst are the school children because they need high-speed internet to watch a lot of educational videos, conduct research for their projects and communicate with other students as well for their daily tasks. This is the reason that the government has emphasized the importance of digitizing the German primary and secondary schools with immediate as soon as possible.

In a move to bring faster internet access to the country, especially to the schools, the German government has set up a find of a whopping €2.4 billion. The target that the government has set for the internets speed is 1 Gbps which will be raised from 100 Mbps by 2025.

Considering the technological prowess that Germany has in almost all the sectors this is not too ambitious of a project. The gradual arrival of 5G technologies and 5G capable devices will compel the country to innovate its internet distributing technologies and the country‘s telecom players will also have to step up their game like what happened in India with the advent of Jio.

In all the sectors starting from smart home appliances, consumer electronics to even smart automobiles, fast internet is a basic necessity for huge loads of data transfers. The German market is in dire need of a full revamp of their existing systems and the Government is looking forward to making the necessary changes.
