T-Online gains more than 500K DSL subs in Q1

German ISP T-Online announced an impressive 500,000 new DSL subscribers in Germany, which serves the company well as it plans to offer triple play services in the country, as well as in France and Spain. The company's chairman Rainer Beaujean said, "After investing in the groundwork for our triple-play strategy in 2005, we are now embarking on the next stage in 2006. With the imminent market launch of triple-play offerings in France and Spain, as well as the unveiling of T-Home in Germany, T-Online will occupy an excellent position in the fast-moving broadband market." T-Online has partnered with Microsoft and Cisco/Linksys to create the needed economies of scale. The SP is integrating Microsoft's MSTV IPTV software platform into its service and is working with Cisco/Linksys for much of the needed hardware.
