Tech & Science Telekom, Vodafone or O2: Which mobile phone provider offers the best network in Cologne?
Cologne: What happens to the mini house in Karstadt?
The house at the Alten Posthof 8 stands like a broken tooth. An unadorned, three-story building, quite lost between the large Karstadt-Haus and the complex with the Görtz shoe store. Generations of Cologne and visitors have wondered: How can this house keep in the giant neighborhood? And why is it there at all? But now there is a change.
three mobile networks are currently available in Germany. Anyone who surfs or calls on the Internet with their smartphone always uses the infrastructure of Telekom, Vodafone or Telefónica (known as an O2 network). This also applies if you have concluded your contract with another provider.
in Cologne offers Telekom the best network quality. This was determined by the specialist magazine Connect together with the service provider Umlaut in a large -scale test. The network of Telefónica is followed by second place. Vodafone forms the bottom.tests in three categories
Connect leads through: language, data and crowd. In the "Language" category, for example, call structure and voice quality are determined. In the "Data" category, Connect tests how well apps work, streaming and website work. In contrast, so -called crowdsourcing are collected in practice measured values of citizens, which then incorporate into the evaluation. This should ensure that not only the maximum possible network performance is recorded, but also what is actually important to users. Other items such as prices and service are not compared in the test.
The railway tunnels remain a problem for mobile phone users. As can be seen from a report by the Federal Network Agency to your advisory board, the network coverage "not all tunnels are completely supplied with".

The tunnels with a bad mobile phone network make up 0.6 to 0.8 percent of the so -called passenger. According to an obligation by the network operators, good cell phone reception must also be possible in tunnels by the end of the year. The letter suggests that this requirement is very likely not reached.
In the voice ranking, Telekom and Telefónica are on the same with 161 out of 162 possible points, Vodafone follows with a slight deficit (159 points). With the crowd data, Telekom beats 144 out of 150 points Telefónica and Vodafone (141 points each). The Bonn Group can achieve the clearest lead in the data rating, where it is located with 279 points clearly ahead of Telefónica (269 points) and Vodafone (251 points).connection in the railway
The quality of the broadband connection (4G and 5G) is broken down in the test to the district level: Telekom and Vodafone in particular have a head-to-head race in the districts close to the city center. Telekom is located in Ehrenfeld, Lindenthal, the Neustadt-Süd and parts of Mülheim. Vodafone, on the other hand, cuts better in Sülz, for example, as well as in Dellbrück, Longerich and Esch/Auweiler. Telefónica customers have the best connection in Junkersdorf, Wahn, Dünnwald, Zollstock, Poll and Deutz.
Kölsch prices: Despite high sales, Cologne breweries have to increase prices
as a result of the heavily increased production costs, some well-known Kölsch brands want to increase their prices at the change of month. "The breweries have been faced with massive cost increases to previously unknown extent in almost all areas for months," describes Georg Schäfer, spokesman for the Radeberger Group, the current situation. The company also includes the Kölscher brewing tradition, which combines the brands Sion, Sester, Peters, Dom and Gilden-Kölsch under one roof.
At the federal level, Telekom can already win the overall ranking for the twelfth time in a row. Especially as far as the mobile phone connection in the train is concerned, all providers still have some catching up to do. You can take an example to the networks of European neighbors: "Especially in comparison with the exemplary services of the Swiss operators (...), all three German providers continue to get room for improvement," says the Connect evaluation.
But also inner German, there will soon be more competition. The provider 1 & 1 Drillisch is currently working on building its own mobile network.
