Continuing expansion of the LTE mobile network

We continued to expand our use of LTE mobile network technology in the Deutsche Telekom network throughout Europe in 2017. In late 2017, average network coverage was at 94 percent of the population, putting our European national companies in line with their target coverage. Network coverage at the end of 2017 was around 93 percent of the German population. Our goal is to achieve 95 percent by the end of 2018. Around 75 percent of European transmitter masts are currently equipped with LTE. Two or more frequency bands are active in almost every fourth LTE location, ensuring more extensive reach and higher speeds.
