Deutsche Telekom is one of the world's leading integrated telecommunication companies, with approximately 131 million mobile customers, 33 million fixed-network lines, and more than 17 million broadband lines. A “gigabit society” is emerging around us, in which high-speed Internet is taken for granted - both at home and on the move. Being always-connected is fundamentally changing the way we communicate. Internet applications have long been an indispensable part of our lives.
In technical terms, this means that ever greater volumes of data need to be transported at ever higher speeds. Our customers expect highly reliable networks which are available at all times.
This calls for a Telekom that brings all these elements together and offers customers a fixed network, mobile communications, and IPTV from a single source. And a network operator that ensures secure access to all private data, wherever the user may be and whatever type of device is used.
But it also calls for even more efficient networks. Deutsche Telekom builds these networks which will not only cover the exploding demand for broadband in the future, but are also intelligent enough to open up new business areas to entire industries, such as the energy sector, healthcare, or the automotive industry. It also calls for platforms and networks which enable easy integration of partners – offering innovative services and products to our customers.
