Mobile phone and internet telephony on the increase, fixed line network business stagnating

15 May 2007

According to the Federal Net Agency in 2006 people in Germany talked
almost 7% longer on the phone than in 2005 which corresponds to about
60 hours on a per capita basis. 23% of this time, however, was not
talked on the traditional fixed line network where the amount of phoned
time has virtually not changed at all since 2002. In the same period of
time, on the other hand, the share of internet telephony (VoIP) has
quadrupled to 3%. The main competitor to the fixed line network,
however, are mobile phones which account for almost 20% of the
telephone business. Their share has increased by on third in the course
of one year.
