Deutsche Telekom will not be able to cap Internet connection speeds when customers exceed data limits on flat-rate packages, a German court ruled on Wednesday. The district court of Cologne said the plans would place an unreasonable disadvantage to the customers as they count on Internet for a fixed price at stable connection speeds. Earlier this year, Deutsche Telekom watered down plans to cap data speeds over fixed broadband lines following a public outrage. It had said that, from 2016, customers who signed up for flat-rate Internet deal and who exceed their monthly data download limit would see their surfing speed capped at 2 megabits per second (Mbit/s).
