Do It Yourself
The „do it yourself“ page is giving you the most recent information about the provider landscape in Germany and direct access to their online offers. It aims to help you gain understanding on how broadband access is realized in Germany and your state and what it takes to place an non serviced online order yourself.
To connect yourself to broadband internet in German in our opinion the first thing you need to know is that Germany is divided into 16 states. That is very important as not every provider can provide service in any state due to the fact of different cable network (TV lines) ownership’s. These can and do vary from state to state and sometimes even within a state and even city.
But that only applies to the classic TV providers with their TV cable network which they use as well for Internet signal transmissions, not for the Telephone companies as they all use more or less the same telephone lines throughout Germany. Meaning that almost every DSL provider can basically provide service everywhere in Germany.
Apart from already having found your new home (house/flat/apartment) in Germany where you want to have Internet, the second most important thing to have is a German or European bank account providing you with a unique IBAN number. In case you hear/read that info for the first time now, do not panic and jump to our affiliate section (sorry, not yet ready) to check serious and easy to setup online bank accounts.
A German mobile phone number is basically mandatory and of huge advantage when it comes to providers and technicians trying to call you. With most provider you will face difficulties when  trying to provide them with your foreign mobile pone number, and rarely i have seen any field technician calling such numbers when trying to make, shift or postpone setup appointments. So in case you have no German mobile phone number already, then have a look on our affiliate section and select a prepaid plan with the most appealing provider. Please be aware that with any mobile phone plan (pre- or postpaid) a video identification process is mandatory by law and performed directly by the provider.
Below you can see a map of Germany with the biggest cities of each state helping you to navigate your way to the available provider in your state. Please click on the state you are moving to or navigate to the bottom of the side to search for your state to see more information and direct links to the actual online offers of the available ISP.
