With more than 800 employees and a large network of stores and retail partners, NetCologne is a regional provider of various telecommunication services, including data, voice and cable TV products.
Over the last few years NetCologne has become one of the most successful regional-carriers in Germany. This development was driven by technical innovations and a competitive pricing.
