Letter from the Chairman

This year we have slimmed down our Annual Report and for a very specific reason: We want to concentrate on the essentials.

At a Glance

We keep our promises: In 2016, we once again met our annual forecast. Net revenue increased substantially as planned.

The T-Share

The development of the global economy in 2016 was slightly positive at around 3.1 percent, in line with the current estimate of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).


We will remain on a course of successful growth and already differentiate ourselves from the competition by having the most modern and best networks.

Sustainable development goals

The core of the 2030 Agenda comprises 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
