DNS:NET is a leading independent telecommunications provider in Germany. Established in 1998, DNS:NET owns the largest independent fibre-to-the-cabinet network in the Berlin area and is rolling out a fibre-to-the home network in Berlin and the surrounding regions.
The company differentiates itself through a superior network, local brand recognition and attractive pricing of high bandwidth products, which drives high customer satisfaction. 3i Infrastructure’s backing will allow DNS:NET to accelerate its build programme to provide gigabit-ready connectivity to its customers.
In line with its business plan, in December 2022, 3i Infrastructure invested a further €18 million into DNS:NET in support of its continued FTTH roll-out. DNS:NET, like many players across the sector, has experienced delays in connecting and activating waiting customers on its network. It has also experienced delays in the handover of local authority constructed networks that it will then operate.
In January 2023, Andre Mueller was appointed as CFO. He brings a wealth of experience as a senior finance professional across a range of sectors.
In July 2023, Ralph Steffens was appointed co-CEO. Ralph has a 25-year track record in telecommunications, including experience rolling out fibre networks.
Note: FTTH: Fibre-to-the-home.
