Fixed-Line Drags Down Deutsche Telekom

Deutsche Telekom's total revenue fell  2.1% year-on-year on a like-for-like basis in the third quarter of 2010 to 15.6 billion euros. Telecoms revenue in Germany fell by 2.4% year-on-year to 6.3 billion euros in the third quarter despite a 2.3% increase in revenues from its mobile communications business to 2.2 billion euros. Excluding the "one-time effect from the expiration of the national roaming agreement with O2 at the end of 2009," dometic mobile revenues grew by 6.4 percent fuelled by fast growth in mobile data revenue, Deutsche Telekom said. Smartphones accounted for 53% of all handsets sold by T-Mobile Germany in the third quarter. Fixed-line sales declined 4.3% year-on-year.

T-Mobile USA's  revenue in the third quarter slipped 0.5% year-on-year to 5.4 billion U.S. dollars. In Deutsche Telekom's European operations (excluding Germany), total revenue declined by 19.5% to 4.1 billion euros compared with the third quarter of 2009. After elimination of T-Mobile UK's contribution, total revenue fell just 3.6%, Deutsche Telekom said. source: Deutsche Telekom statement
