As the demand for bandwidth in broadband Internet connections to private households are increasing, the current copper network in Denmark is facing a considerable upgrade to meet the governments goal of equal access to everyone. In this paper an analysis is presented concerning the coverages of households for a variety of xDSL technologies. A cost estimation has been made when expanding the current copper infrastructure to provide VDSL connections to all households in a municipality in Denmark.
