German mobile revenues drop only 0.5% as operators compensate negative regulatory effects

Wednesday 27 December 2017 | 13:00 CET | Author: Kamiel Albrecht | Background
German mobile service revenues fell by just 0.5 percent year-on-year to EUR 4.61 billion in the third quarter of 2017, despite the negative impact of regulatory measures such as RLAH in the EU and lower mobile termination fees, according to Telecompaper's quarterly report on the German mobile market. Telefonica Germany led the fall in revenues, while Telekom Deutschland and Vodafone showed growth. All three operators claimed negative effects from the regulatory measures, while Telefonica was also hit by a decrease in prepaid customers and prepaid ARPU.
