Germany Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Because of its historical no-frills nature, there are strong opportunities available in the German telecoms market through migration to more advanced services. Steps including post-paid, smartphone, LTE and convergence have been taken by the operators, but they will continue to face price competition from low-end players operating as MVNOs. The same trend is in play in the broadband market, where operators are investing into new technologies, including vectoring, cable and fibre, but these investments are expensive and whether return on investments will be enough, in a traditionally cheap market, would remain to be seen.
