FRITZ!Box Fiber: save energy costs on your fiber optic connection

A FRITZ!Box Fiber can save around 40 percent in energy costs – compared to a connection that uses a router with an additional fiber optic modem. A FRITZ!Box Fiber integrates a router and modem as a combined device and is connected directly to the optical fibers at the passive network termination point. This saves electricity and ensures easy and convenient operation. Internet, Wi-Fi, streaming, telephony, Smart Home and much more – FRITZ!Box Fiber is the perfect choice for your fiber connection.

The advantage of a FRITZ!Box Fiber: There is no need to connect a second device to the internet. Compared to the average power consumption of a router with an external fiber optic modem, you can save around 40 percent in energy costs with a fully integrated FRITZ!Box Fiber. Calculated over five years, this results in a savings potential of 100 euros. With a total of around 2.5 million fiber optic connections in Germany, the potential savings would be equivalent to the power consumption of about 55,000 households.
