The coming weeks will see the political course being set for the development of the future mobile broadband infrastructure in Germany.

Deutsche Telekom and Telefónica Deutschland are joining forces to accelerate the expansion of their mobile networks. The two companies have agreed to connect at least 5,000 Telefónica Deutschland mobile network sites in total to Telekom’s high-performance fibre-optic infrastructure in the long term. In turn, Deutsche Telekom can directly leverage the synergy effects from this to expand its own network. This cooperation is not just remarkable because of its size. It is also ground-breaking in terms of the future 5G communication standard and new digital applications.

Telefónica Deutschland has successfully implemented the voice standard Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) within its national LTE network. Technically speaking, the new voice standard is a further development of AMR-WB (Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband): O2 customers in the LTE network can now make calls in excellent Full HD voice quality. With EVS, telephone calls are transmitted much more clearly and naturally than before – EVS transmits the audible frequency range at up to 16,000 Hertz instead of up to 7,000 Hertz as used to be the case. As a result, EVS means conversations are perceived as clearer, more understandable and therefore more natural. Another advantage is that the new codec allows background noise to be suppressed better than before. EVS significantly improves the sound image compared to previous mobile calls.

Telefónica Deutschland is currently pushing the nationwide LTE expansion on a massive scale. In order to enhance its customers’ network experience, the company is constructing several new LTE stations in both urban and rural areas and increasing existing capacities. In the first half of 2018, the telecommunications provider already installed more than 3,000 additional LTE stations or upgraded existing LTE sites. This corresponds to approx. 120 LTE upgrades per week – at peak times even 200 per week. Thanks to this comprehensive network expansion, even more customers can browse the web at high speed in more and more places, stream videos smoothly, share their pictures with other people within seconds and make calls in the best HD voice quality thanks to voice telephony via LTE (Voice over LTE; VoLTE).

After growth in the first half of the year, Telefónica Deutschland is on track to meet its targets for 2018. From January to June, the company increased its operating income before depreciation and amortisation (OIBDA) adjusted for exceptional and regulatory effects by 6.1% to EUR 927 million. This was driven mainly by further synergies from the merger with E-Plus as well as the cost-efficient acquisition of new customers. Adjusted for regulatory effects, revenues increased by 0.3% to EUR 3.55 billion in the first half of the year. Revenues from devices and mobile services had a positive effect here. The number of mobile contract customers rose by 333,000 in the second quarter thanks to attractive new tariffs. Mobile data use grew particularly sharply in this period with an increase of 54%, with the new O2 Free tariffs with extra-large data packages playing a crucial role.
