             In Germany, 42 percent of companies with at least 10 employees have a broadband connection with 30 Mbps or more. The Federal Republic is therefore slightly above the average in the EU.
            

        

        42 percent of German companies with 10 or more employees have a broadband Internet connection with at least 30 Mbit / s. This number for 2017, the Federal Statistical Office announced on Friday. As in previous years, Germany thus ended up in midfield in a Europe-wide comparison. On average, in the 28 EU Member States, 40 percent of companies with more than 10 employees go online via such a broadband connection. The Federal Office refers here to the fastest fixed Internet connection.
Fear for Germany's competitiveness According to further information from the Federal Statistical Office, 27 percent of German companies had a contractual data transmission rate of less than 10 Mbit / s in 2017 and 31 percent between 10 Mbit / s and 30 Mbit / s. Only 12 percent of companies have a broadband connection with more than 100 Mbit / s.

          Fast internet at companies: Germany still in the midfield
        
     Compared to 2016, the number of fast Internet connections with 30 Mbps and more in Germany increased by 4 per cent and in the entire European Union by 6 per cent. The top places in the past year were Denmark (73 percent), the Netherlands (65 percent) and Sweden (64 percent). On the back were Cyprus (25 percent), Greece (25 percent) and Italy (23 percent).
If Germany does not soon leave the European midfield behind it, it will lose its connection with the urgently needed digitization of the economy, said Barbara Engels, an economist at the Institute of German Business in relation to the dpa. Although more and more regions have access to broadband Internet, the pace of expansion remains too low. This concerns above all enterprises in the country. Here there is a classic chicken and egg problem: Because fast Internet is in short supply, it often does not determine the products and business models of the companies – and is therefore not required.
No statement on the actual speed statisticians have compiled for their numbers the contractually agreed transfer rates, but that does not mean that the companies actually come with these speeds in the network: According to the Federal Network Agency, most users in Germany can not surf at the contractually agreed maximum speed.
