The telecommunications industry is currently undergoing a phase of high investments in order to meet customer demand for high network quality and capacity. Deutsche Telekom is reacting to this development with increased investments in network infrastructure via a systematic broadband rollout. Our plans provide for further high investments in high-performance networks, which not only will cover the explosive demand for bandwidth in the future, but are also intelligent enough to open up new business areas in industries, such as the energy, healthcare and automotive sectors.
International banks and investors enable Deutsche Telekom to finance these investments. Our providers of debt capital can rely on a sound financial policy. Thomas Dannenfeldt, CFO of Deutsche Telekom, affirms that "We have stuck dependably to our finance strategy for years and as a result, enjoy a strong reputation with the capital markets. Sustainable statement of financial position ratios and an adequate liquidity reserve give Deutsche Telekom unrestricted access to the international capital markets."
