U.S. and Germany Hold Back DT
Hit by lower fixed-line sales in Germany and lower mobile sales in the U.S., Deutsche Telekom said its organic revenues declined 3.3% year-on-year to 15.81 billion euros in the first quarter of 2010. Service revenues in the U.S. fell 2.5% as T-Mobile U.S. continued to lose customers, while fixed-line revenues in Germany sank 4%.
Deutsche Telekom said its 3G network in the U.S. now has almost 27,000 base stations (up 1,437 in the first quarter), providing coverage to 208 million people. Its goal is to provide HSPA+ coverage to 185 Americans by the end of 2010. source: Deutsche Telekom presentation
