DT CEO denounces re-monopolisation claims

Tuesday 3 May 2016 | 13:22 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom CEO Niek Jan van Damme said Germany's culture of discussion is under fire from extreme polarisation and excessive self-criticism and that this is harming the debate around broadband expansion. Parties are fighting over what are right and wrong technologies, invoking the spectre of re-monopolisation, and accusing the German government and regulatory authorities of partiality, which the CEO believes is wrong and harmful.
