Landline and Internet in Germany
You can choose from a large amount of offers made by the various German telephone operators and Internet access providers.
Update: Jan 2014
In Germany, you can get package contracts including landline telephone, Internet access and even TV service for a monthly rate
Before making your choice, you should think about what use you will make of the phone (frequency and destination of the calls) as well as the length of your subscription. Commitment periods in German telephone contracts are fixed.
Exception for the minimum duration is the case of moving abroad. Subject to the TKG-Novelle §46 VIII, customers who move abroad and who are not able to reach the service of their previous provider there, can cancel their contract with a three months period of notice even if the minimum duration of their contract is not over yet.
When switching to another provider or moving within the same area, you can port your landline number. The porting procedure is similar to the mobile number porting, but it is recommended to request the porting before cancelling your previous contract.
