Germany Telecommunications Report

BMI View : Consolidation is driving the German telecommunications market as operators strive to reinvent themselves as full converged service providers. O2 h as acquired E-Plus and Vodafone has gained control of Kabel Deutschland Grou p and launched Netflix streaming video alongside its more orthodox pay-TV services . Low value voice and messaging services are being superseded by data-centric services as more consumers demand 'everything everywhere' access. The shift of one mobile virtual network operator from low-value prepaid to high-value postpaid plans conveys the story set to play out over the next five years. In fixed-line segment too, competition is rife with operators investing heavily in new infrastructure to increase their market shares. BMI believes t he German competitive landscape is changing quickly and that many of today's players will not stay the course.

Key Data

  • Mobile subscriptions forecast to rise from 117.4mn in 2014 to 120.9mn by the end of 2019 despite continued net losses at Vodafone and the amalgamation of O2 and E-Plus The market is buoyed by robust mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) expansion and customer migration to 4G (LTE).

  • Improved mobile subscriber mix and the loss of non revenue-generating inactive subscriptions at Vodafone (and likely also at O2 after the E-Plus acquisition) should lead to a small improvement in the rate of average revenue per user (ARPU) erosion. However, the trend remains downward overall. BMI forecasts industry average ARPUs to fall from EUR13.4 in 2014 to EUR12.4 in 2019.

Key Developments

The German government plans to auction two blocks of 30MHz frequencies in the 700MHz band. Mobile broadband services using this spectrum will be phased in from 2017. The auction will take place in H115, at the same time as a separate auction for 900MHz and 1800MHz frequencies, rights to which expire at the end of 2016. Lots, consisting of two paired blocks of 5MHz in the 700MHz band,...
