Germany - Major Telecom Players

Synopsis

Germany has Europe’s largest telecom market, supported by a large and affluent population receptive to emerging technologies. Internet use is higher that the EU average, though broadband lags behind. Strong growth in the mobile sector since 2006 has pushed mobile penetration to 112%, catching up with the EU average. The fixed network and broadband markets in Germany are dominated by Deutsche Telekom, though notable players including freenet/debitel, O2 (Telefónica ), E-Plus (KPN) and Arcor (Vodafone) have gained market share as the incumbent has struggled with poor recent performance. This report presents operator statistics, and market analyses on emerging trends in 2008.
