Deutsche Telekom is one of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies, with some 168 million mobile customers, 28 million fixed-network lines, and 19 million broadband lines.
Deutsche Telekom provides fixed-network/broadband, mobile communications, Internet, and IPTV products and services for consumers, and information and communication technology (ICT) solutions for business and corporate customers. Deutsche Telekom is present in more than 50 countries. With a staff of some 216,000 employees throughout the world, the company generated revenue of 74,9 billion Euros in the 2017 financial year, about 66 percent of it outside Germany.
So that Deutsche Telekom continues to be successful, the company is already evolving from a traditional telephone company into an entirely new kind of service company. The core business, i.e., the operation and sale of networks and connections, remains the basis. But at the same time the company is proactively committing to business areas that open up new growth opportunities.
