Telefónica Deutschland wireless revenue growth slows

27 February 2013 | Kavit Majithia

Telefónica Deutschland has said its Q4 revenue growth from the wireless business slowed largely due to decreasing revenues from traditional mobile services.

Wireless revenues rose by 3.6%, which is a slowdown from previous growth of 5.6% in Q3 and 8.6% in Q2 last year.

Q4 operating income rose 1.8%, to €343 million for the company, which operates as the smallest of four operators in Germany.

It presently competes for market share with Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and KPN’s E-Plus unit.
