Posted on 13-Aug-2005 12:02 | Tags Filed under: News



T-Mobile International added more than 2 million customers in the second quarter 2005 and served 80.9 million customers in the consolidated countries on 30 June 2005, 13 percent more than a year before.

Total revenues compared to the second quarter 2004 were up 7.9 percent to EUR 7.2 billion and adjusted EBITDA was up 16.6 percent to EUR 2.5 billion.

T-Mobile USA continued its growth story with 972,000 net customer adds, more than in the first quarter of this year. At the same time compared to the second quarter 2004 it increased its EBITDA by 55 percent to US$ 857 million.

T-Mobile Deutschland reports this quarter’s highest customer growth among all German operators. With 623,000 net adds its total customer base is now up to 28.2 million users, and 48 percent of the new customers decided for a postpaid contract. The 42.5 percent EBITDA margin is 2.1 percentage points higher than in the second quarter of last year.

The operator says interest in mobile data services is quite high: in the first half year of 2005 T-Mobile sold more than 260,000 data centric devices such as MDA and Sidekick in Europe. And more than a further million multimedia devices that allow downloads of videos, games, music or e-mails were sold in Europe at the same time. In the US there are almost 600,000 customers using a Blackberry handset connected to the company's cellular network.
