The document states that DeutscheOSS wants to expand a fiber optic network with private investment funds in a total of 16 districts – these include: Dittelstedt, Azmannsdorf, Büßleben, Hochstedt, Kerspleben, Linderbach, Niedernissa, Urbich, Vieselbach, Töttleben , Windischholzhausen, Gispersleben, Schwerborn, Stotternheim, Kühnhausen and Mittelhausen.

At the same time, a competitor (“Deutsche GigaNetz”) plans to extend a fiber optic network to other parts of the city.
