Perhaps it is one of the problems that plague the german provider market: traditional rooted monopolies. The german Telekom when it got privatized retained all rights to their publicly paid for cable network. They were in charge of maintenance and granting connections to competitors. This is why service in Germany is sometimes abysimal, especially when changing providers. Cable networks are not yet suitably distributed to force competition and wireless is still too slow. It is a case example of how not to privatize a sector.
Just compare it with France where the french telecom is one player amongst many and they usually have excellent service.
