Perspectives from Germany’s leading towerco on Europe’s largest telecom market
An interview with Deutsche Funkturm
Deutsche Funkturm (DFMG), a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, is Germany’s largest towerco, operating 27,000 sites across the country. They recently acquired 7,700 towers from Telefonica in July 2015 which are now managed under a newly created entity, Omega Towers. They are currently constructing a significant number of new macro-locations across the country and are also starting to explore micro-sites to address Germany’s growing bandwidth requirements.
