German DSL and LTE on a Coverage Map

Here's a link to an interesting map (Breitbandatlas) on the website of the German Department of Commerce on where in the country high speed Internet access is available at speeds of >= 1 Mbit/s. The map is an overlay of fixed line DSL availability with HSPA and LTE coverage. The map is split into tiny cells and for each cell the networks are listed that are available at that location. The result is 99.5% population coverage.

A very good value but it should be noted that for those covered by HSPA and LTE, there's a volume limit per month, typically between 5 and 30 GB depending on the price. That's quite enough for most people and includes occasional Youtube use. Don't forget though to tell your kids about the limit, too 🙂
