ASOTEM - Asociación de Operadores de Telecomunicaciones Empresariales (Business Telecommunications Operators Association)

Telecom operators specialized in business services have joined together to form  ASOTEM, aiming to promote common goals, including participation in regulatory and competition issues, reduction of operational costs, and the increase of its international presence in order to achieve greater efficiency and visibility.

The Association, which is open to new members, consists of twelve operators which represent the diversity of the sector: from those with longstanding nationwide presence, as Sarenet, Grupalia Internet [ GNET ] or Aire Networks, to other initially linked to specific territories, as DTI2 (Andalusia), Idecnet (Canary Islands), Imatel (Basque Country), Oceans (Galicia), ProRed (Valencia), or with specific business approaches, as Adamo (FTTH), Carrier Enabler (Wholesale) or Zertia (Managed Services), and, last but definitely not least, who successfully entered the stock market (MAB) with new projects, as VozTelecom.

Through this initiative, these operators aim to promote specialized quality services in the enterprise market, both for large companies and for SMEs and even for professionals and freelancers, to whom, they say, quoting data from the Spanish Regulator (CNMC), general-market operators offer services excessively similar to those aimed for residential customers, to really suit businesses needs. Business services are a market in which the position of these specialized operators is very strong, although sometimes not perceived, because their presence is concealed with the figures, much larger, from operators directed to the residential market.

ASOTEM's members are jointly addressing regulatory improvement initiatives, which deal with general interest issues, considering that current regulation is not adapted to telecom needs of businesses, because its approach is basically oriented to the residential market. This situation causes serious damages to the competitiveness of businesses, which lack an adequate supply of telecommunications services, adapted sufficiently to their requirements, which would be essential for economic growth.

The German Broadband Association (BREKO) represents the majority of all alternative fixed line broadband network operators in Germany. BREKO members rely on future-proof fibre infrastructures and currently account for more than 60 percent of the competitive FTTB/H deployment.

Since its inception in 1999, BREKO has successfully advocated competition on the German telecommunications market. Our more than 270 members, including more than 150 city and regional carriers as well as municipal utilities, provide urban as well as rural areas, the so-called "white spots", with high-performance fibre access. To this end, they invest more than EUR 1.5 billion every year. BREKO companies thus make a major contribution to the comprehensive fibre deployment in Germany as well as to the achievement of the German Federal Government’s broadband targets.

BREKO members are willing and prepared to continue their significant investments in order to establish fibre as the proper foundation for digitisation and to pave the way for Germany towards the Gigabit Society. BREKO is committed to achieving this goal by providing expert knowledge on adequate political and regulatory framework conditions. Consequently, the leading German fibre association has positioned itself with a clear infrastructure target of comprehensive coverage of fibre access providing at least 1 Gbps by 2025.

BREKO has evolved into a strong union consisting of the BREKO Association, the BREKO Purchasing Group, and the BREKO Service Company. Within this union, we join the forces of our members to strengthen competition on the German telecommunications market!

Facts:

  • Members: > 270
  • Network operators: > 160
  • Other companies with telecoms activities (suppliers, consultants etc.): > 110
  • Homes passed FTTB/H: 1.28 million
  • Broadband speeds (Mbps, down/up): Up to 1 Gbps
  • Aggregated investments in broadband infrastructure: > EUR 1.5 billion p.A.
