Schwalldorf - Infrastructure - Telecommunication


Until a modification of the local network in 2005, the use of the Internet was only possible with ISDN. Since then DSL light (384 kbit/s) has been available in some streets. A faster Internet connection is not possible, by the reason of old wires. A modernization of the connection is refused by the German Telecom because of little profitability. The village has about 250 households. The German Telecom requires a minimum amount of 300 households that demand a faster connection for a replacement of the old wires. Though there are people, especially seniors, who are not interested in a faster broadband connection.

Several suburbs of Rottenburg are concerned by a slow Internet connection. In July 2008 a citizens' group for DSL was founded in Bieringen, a neighbor village of Schwalldorf. The aim was to reach a faster Internet connection by radio. In addition a radio mast would have had to be built on the plateau near Schwalldorf. However, in August the plan was canceled, because the town administration of Rottenburg announced an open call for tender. If the project succeeds DSL at a speed of probably 16,000 kbit/s will be available in Schwalldorf.
