Strong Quarter for Deutsche Telekom

Deutsche Telekom reported a 6.8% year-on-year rise in revenues (on an organic basis) for the second quarter to 26.6 billion euros. As of June 30th, T-Mobile US’ customer base was 104.8 million, an increase of almost 6.5 million year-on-year. Revenue in Germany was up 1.4%, mainly driven by broadband revenue growth and a rise in equipment sales both in the fixed network and in mobile communications. 

On June 30th, DT switched off its UMTS (3G) network across Germany and began using the freed-up spectrum for LTE/4G and 5G services. In the second quarter of 2021, it upgraded more than 800 additional sites for 5G, meaning it now offers 5G to 82.4 % of German households. DT said its LTE network covered 98.9% of German households at the end of the second quarter.

In the United States, T‑Mobile US said its "ultra capacity" 5G network in the 2.5 GHz and mmWave bands now covers 165 million people, while the 5G service in the 600 MHz band is available to 305 million people. According to Ookla®, T‑Mobile US’ 5G network covered 92 % of the interstate highway miles across America in June 2021. Source: Deutsche Telekom statements
