Deutsche Telekom AG - Interim Group report - January 1 to September 30, 2015

8 To our shareholders Deutsche Telekom. Interim Group Report 9M 2015. PARTNERSHIPS In September 2015, we won important new partners from the book trade for our e-reader tolino. As an international partner, Libris Blz. will offer tolino in its bookshops in the Netherlands and via its webshops. In Germany, we were able to expand our tolino alliance to include Mayersche, the biggest regional bookshop in North Rhine-Westphalia, and the Osiander chain in the South of Germany. In September 2015 we entered into a new strategic partnership with Inmarsat, a provider for satellite communications. Together we intend to develop the European Aviation Network so that, in the future, we can offer passengers in European airspace broadband Internet access on board. This will be based on the intelligent combination of an innovative LTE network on the ground that is developed and operated by us, and communication via the new Inmarsat S-band satellite. Lufthansa will be the first European airline to use the new access options and conduct test flights to help develop the European Aviation Network. At the start of July 2015, we entered into a major partnership with Readly, a service provider that gives customers access to more than 1,100 national and international magazines in a single app. Readlyʼs magazine flat rate can be subscribed to directly as an add-on option to our mobile contracts. The partnership with Readly is another important step in our strategy of offering attractive services through partnerships. NEW PRODUCTS The new service One Number will in future allow our business customers in Germany to decide for themselves which phone number – mobile or fixed-network – is displayed when they call. This option will allow employees to make calls under their fixed-network number even while they are on the move or when working from home. One Number can be easily activated and deactivated, configured and customized, either online or using an app. The new Enterprise Mobility Management Suite (EMM Suite) from T-Systems offers companies a comprehensive solution not only for configuring mobile devices, but also for managing applications and data securely. This enables employees, for example, to securely access company resources, and read, edit and share data from their mobile devices. The application is provided from the cloud, including hosting in Telekom-certified data centers in Germany. AWARDS In the readersʼ choice awards of the “connect” trade magazine we took the top spot in six categories: 86,000 readers voted us best fixed-network and mobile network operator, for example. Our second brand “congstar” was awarded best mobile provider, and T-Mobile Austria best mobile network operator in Austria. In another test by “connect,” our IPTV offering Entertain also performed well again – in particular our many years of experience in operating IPTV services is paying off in terms of good picture quality and service. We were named “Best in Test” by P3 Communications in three European countries: Cosmote, the mobile subsidiary of our Greek subsidiary OTE, was distinguished for its voice and data service. In Croatia, we scored the highest number of points in the independent test, and Slovak Telekom won the distinction for the second time this year. We received two accolades for our leading role in the machine-to-machine (M2M) market: in July 2015 from the analyst company Analysys Mason in the annual M2M Scorecard ranking, and from Gartner in its Magic Quadrant. Furthermore, in September 2015, T-Systems was named “Best in Class” twice by the analysts from PAC – once for its operation and management of the technical basis of SAP applications (Hosting category) and once for its expertise in SAP application management. In September 2015, our Europe-wide commitment to the best customer experiencereceivedinternationalrecognitionattheUKCustomerExperience Awards. For our ICCA program (International Customer Contact Analysis), which covers all key customer contact channels, we won first place in the International Business category.
