Optical fibers in the Döbeln region: 200 million euros now go underground

Chub.In the Limmritz and Wöllsdorf districts of Döbeln, the first four kilometers and 100 home connections of the fiber optic network have already been prepared on the civil engineering side. “The conduits where the fiber-optic cables will be blown at a later time are already in the ground there,” says Jürgen Steinert of the cable company TKI that was commissioned to do this. But this is just the beginning of the largest investment project in the Mittelsachsen region, worth 200 million euros. The joint projects with eins energie of Chemnitz alone include civil engineering works on a total of 1,523 km of the canal. 9,357 km of fiber-optic cable, 2,977 km of empty ducts, 848 cable junctions and 36 main distributors will be built.

With a brave push on the bell, Roland Warner, Managing Director of Eins, Secretary of State Thomas Schmidt, District Director Matthias Dam, Minister of State Ines Frolich, and Matthias Bohrm, Broadband Representative for the District Office (from left), began expanding broadband in the district.

About 10,000 households will get the new fiber optic connection fully supported and therefore free. Another 15,600 plots of land along the expansion routes can be partially supported for a small connection fee. A total of about 37,000 families in groups B to F in the district of Mittelsachsen, as well as 115 schools, as well as companies and hospitals, now have Internet at the speed of light thanks to the fiber-optic network. Döbeln is in group B and was the site of the official start of construction on Friday. This group B extends through Waldheim to the Kriebstein Dam.

Also at Zschaitz-Ottewig, cable shafts have been on the road for a few weeks. The first 800 meters of underground construction road was laid here. “Because there are many field discharges under the fields without precise plans, the directed drilling method is used here. In this way we do not bother the farmers when we lay cable tracks three meters deep under the fields,” says Jürgen Steinert of the cable company TKI. “People in our cities are happy with the expansion of fiber optics. When people want to move in with us, they always ask for fast internet,” says Imo Barkowitz, Mayor of Zschaitz-Ottewig. Around Men’s Day, excavations will begin on a larger scale in the community. The municipality has provided construction companies A place for materials and technology in the sports field.
