Search Inside

The German mobile market is the largest in Europe, with the number of subscribers approaching 114 million. In common with most developed markets, the main driver for growth is in mobile data, with the number of mobile broadband subscribers having increased rapidly in recent years on the back of universally available 3G infrastructure and an extensive reach of LTE networks. Operators have invested in MIMO and carrier aggregation technologies to provide improved data rates. Looking forward, there is also increasing activity in 5G, with Deutsche Telekom in February 2017 announcing its intention to provide 5G across its networks from 2020.

The mobile market is dominated by a triopoly of MNOs, led by Telefónica Germany and followed by Telekom Deutschland (Deutsche Telekom’s domestic unit) and Vodafone Germany. Telefónica’s acquisition of E-Plus created an operator which by early 2017 had more than 44 million subscribers, while Telekom Deutschland had about 41 million and Vodafone some 30 million. There is also healthy competition from an increasing number of resellers. This has placed pressure on voice and data tariffs, resulting in lower ARPU. Regulatory pressure on roaming charges and mobile termination rates have also eroded operator revenue, and encouraged them to step-up their development of data applications to improve profits.

This report provides key statistics and analyses on the mobile market, including an overview of the main operators and their strategies for dealing with competition and emerging technologies in coming years. The report also considers recent regulatory developments.

Telekom Deutschland launches NB-IoT network; O2 Germany expands mobile banking service; Vodafone Germany increases LTE speeds to 500Mb/s; universal broadband dependant on licence conditions concerned with rural areas; O2 reports having over 12 million LTE customers; Deutsche Telekom commits to 5G across its network footprint; report update includes the regulator’s market data for 2015, VATM’s 2016 market data, telcos’ operating and financial data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.
