1&1 becomes 2nd largest DSL provider in Germany in Q4

Wednesday 27 March 2013 | 11:57 CET | News
1&1 overtook Vodafone in terms of DSL internet customers during the final quarter of last year, said DSLweb, citing its 'DSL Broadband Report Q4 2012'. The market as a whole saw a decline in DSL subscribers, with Deutsche Telekom registering almost zero growth but retaining its leading position in the market. Vodafone shed 73,000 DSL customers, the heaviest loss since it entered the business, while Deutsche Telekom lost 54,000. 1&1 gained 40,000 new customers in the final quarter to 3.3 million, giving it the second largest market share in the country.

In my opinion, big does not necessarily mean good. Remember Bernie Madoff and Enron were big too. Now they are poster children for mismanagement. I had been trying for months to cancel my account with 1&1. Why, because they keep renewing domains I do not want renewed. Finally I get an email in December of 2008 that I would get no further invoices. This is after they renewed all the domains I did not want. I had to pay for all the domains because Capital One took their word over mine. Now came March 2009 and they send me another invoice and declare there is a balance on my account. Thankfully I cancelled all association with Capital One. The Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau had given 1and1 Internet their lowest rating: “F”
