The companies in the Oberpfaffenhofen and Neugilching business parks should be happy about Internet with ten gigabits per second.
Laying work on the fiber optic lines started yesterday morning and everything should be ready in May.
Gilching/Weßling – The entrance to the discounter at Argelsrieder Feld will be framed with red and white construction site protection for the coming period.
The reason: The Internet for the Oberpfaffenhofen and Neugilching commercial areas is to be improved to up to ten gigabits per second with the help of fiber optic connections.
Yesterday the official groundbreaking ceremony for the M-net project took place at Argelsrieder Feld.
"The district very much welcomes the approach," said District Administrator Stefan Frey.
“Fast internet is very important for the ever-growing location and the companies based there.
That was always a point of criticism up to now.” M-net decided in favor of the broadband expansion primarily because of the profitability of the two commercial areas.
"It's booming here," emphasized Hannes Lindhuber, Head of Corporate Communications at M-net.
A large part of the approximately 80 companies and companies that have their headquarters there have already signed the contract with the telecommunications provider.
Companies can still opt for fiber optic expansion
"Therefore, it is also possible to expand independently without funding," said Lindhuber.
For local companies that have not yet decided on the fiber optic connection, there is still the opportunity to apply for an M-net connection during the construction phase, which lasts until May.
The fiber optic connection to the company building would then be free of charge.
"At a later point in time, development costs will be due for the connection to the fiber optic network.
The expansion phase is therefore the last opportunity to get a free connection to the future-proof fiber optic network," explained Nelson Killius, spokesman for the management of M-net.
"The expansion represents an important gap closure in the local broadband supply and of course improves the economic factor of the location enormously," said Wessling's Mayor Michael Sturm. His Gilching colleague Manfred Walter added: "If broadband connections are available, more companies will come who want to settle here on the airport site." His community is generally well positioned when it comes to fiber optics. “The place, the commercial and residential areas are very well equipped across the board. The problem is the hamlets like Rottenried or Steinlach. There are small companies, but large telecommunications providers are not interested in expanding.”
M-net's next project in the western district is already imminent.
The company is currently examining fiber optic development for around 70 other companies in the Gilching-Süd business park, which could start after the work in Oberpfaffenhofen and Neugilching.
