Who set up the company “Unsere Grüne Glasfaser”?
Headquartered in Ismaning, Germany, Unsere Grüne Glasfaser (UGG) was founded in 2020 as a joint venture between Allianz and Telefónica Group. UGG harnesses cutting-edge fibre-optic technology to provide reliable, future-proof, high-speed internet, focusing in particular on fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband implementations in rural areas. The benefits of fibre networks also extend to the environment: full fibre is more energy-efficient, consuming some 60 percent less energy than older-style copper-based networks, including vectoring DSL. It also offers an excellent way to transition to fibre in the areas in which it is deployed.
Who are our investors?
UGG is a joint venture between Telefónica and Allianz, which have joined forces to roll out high-speed internet connections right across Germany. Allianz is one of the world’s largest financial services companies. As a long-term investor in UGG, it offers a wealth of experience gained from numerous fibre-optic technology investments. It also provides significant financial backing and expertise and a strong local presence. Telefónica is one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies. Drawing on its extensive technical capabilities and know-how in the deployment and operation of fibre networks, it has completed numerous successful projects in many different countries.
What is our mission?
Our mission is to implement comprehensive fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks with a particular focus on rural areas. In doing so, we aim to promote the high-speed society, encourage growth, and create the infrastructure required to secure digital equality throughout Germany.
What is UGG’s business model?
UGG is a vendor-agnostic infrastructure provider. We make our fibre-to-the-home infrastructure available to internet service providers, who then offer high-speed broadband under favourable terms to you, the end customer. This set-up helps to ensure the retention of attractive and innovative services over the medium term. We are open to working with any interested ISPs and local utility companies to create a network that provides end customers with high-speed broadband through sustainable full fibre technology.
In what sense are we “green”?
We are very proud of the fact that full fibre technology uses 60 percent less energy than conventional copper-based networks. That means we are making a long-term contribution to protecting the environment in addition to our eco-friendly fibre installation techniques. Our full fibre network offers a powerful and reliable solution which – based on current technical knowledge – should be fit for purpose for the next 50 years.
