Last week in telecoms: all eyes on Germany

Monday 20 August 2018 | 10:44 CET | News
Earnings season was slowly coming to an end in week 33, leaving one eye-catching victim: Tele Columbus, which had to delay its Q2 report. Other than that, the German market demanded investor attention with fibre roll-out planning possibly going into a new stage. Our European telecom index was down 1.4 percent, whereas the EuroStoxx 50 index ended the week unchanged. Intelsat is still the year-to-date champion, but it lost some ground.
