Deutsche Telekom strategic plan: FMC, network investment and cost savings

Wednesday 30 May 2018 | 17:40 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Deutsche Telekom has recently updated its strategy for the next three years. The operator admitted that it was unable to realise all the cost savings in its previous three-year plan, but will continue to work on reducing its costs. This, along with convergence, network investments, efficiency and simplification efforts, should help restore growth. Conclusion: new technology makes cost savings possible but also necessary in order to grow.
