German mobile market growth outlook mixed as 5G auction looms

Wednesday 29 August 2018 | 16:17 CET | Author: Kamiel Albrecht | Background
Nevertheless, Telefonica is still the largest operator in the prepaid market, with a 41.2 percent share of Sims at the end of Q2 2018. Telekom Deutschland came second with 35.1 percent, after growing its prepaid customer base by 6.7 percent year-on-year. The growth was due in part to a MVNO deal with German supermarket Edeka, which moved from Vodafone to the Telekom network. This contributed to an almost 13 percent year-on-year decline in Vodafone's prepaid base, to reach a market share of 23.7 percent at the end of Q2.
