T-Online flat rate soon off the market?
Shortly after the RegTP's decision on the flat rate was announced, Telekom was in trouble. In an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Ron Sommer, CEO of Deutsche Telekom AG, said that the company might get out of the flat rate sector.
Sommer's opinion: 'If Telekom has to offer its competitors a wholesale flat rate because T-Online has a flat rate of 79 marks for end customers, we discontinue it '. This means that the price for the wholesale flat rate could be higher than expected. The T-Flat will remain in place for the next few months, as Deutsche Telekom has signed 12-month contracts with users.
