The network will be open for other network operators like Deutsche Telekom, Arcor, Versatel, Hansenet and Unitymedia to provide their triple play services including digital TV, broadband internet and telephony. The company will be called essen.net and will become official if the municipal council approves the proposal of EVV during their session on 24 June. Conlinet CEO Thomas Simon said that if the approval is given, essen.net will start connecting the first households in the second half of this year. Essen.net targets to deploy FTTH to all houses and buildings in the city and to prevent too much nuisance, the company will partner with city utilities provider Stadtwerke Essen deploying fibre when gas and water connections are renewed. The total investment is expected to be more than EUR 10 million per year from 2010 until all 45,000 houses and buildings in Essen are connected.
