DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
DSL is available throughout the cities of Ulm and Neu-Ulm. You will most likely receive the needed DSL hardware when signing the contract (be aware of the minimum duration). Monthly costs: €20 - 40, depending on the provider and bandwidth.
There are also a lot of providers (Telekom, 1&1, O2, Freenet, Unitymedia, SWU etc.) offering private landlines and DSL flat rates in a bundle. Please refer to their websites for more information.
You could share your DSL connection with your roommates to decrease your personal costs.
