Deutsche Telekom and Telefónica Deutschland team up for network expansion
The two companies have agreed to connect at least 5,000 Telefónica Deutschland mobile base stations with Deutsche Telekom's high-performance fiber-optic network in the long term.
In turn, Deutsche Telekom can dedicate the captured synergy effects directly to its own network expansion.
This cooperation is not only remarkable due to its scope; it also points the way forward for the future 5G communications standard and new digital applications. ■
