Deutsche Telekom launches unlimited mobile data flat rate
March 6, 2018 10.55 Europe/London By Jörn Krieger
German telco Deutsche Telekom has introduced a mobile tariff with unlimited data volume.
MagentaMobil XL costs €79.95 per month, Michael Hagspihl, managing director of the consumer business department, announced at the presentation of the new offer in Bonn.
A domestic telephony and SMS flat rate is also part of the tariff; data access includes LTE. There are 23 GB of data allowance per month for use in other EU countries.
MagentaMobil XL is available through all distribution channels from today.
Up to now, tariffs with unlimited data usage have been available in Germany mainly in the business customer segment at high costs. Deutsche Telekom is the first mobile player entering the B2C mass market with an unlimited data volume.
MagentaMobil XL complements the zero-rating option StreamOn Deutsche Telekom introduced in April 2017. More than 200 video and audio streaming partners have so far been won for StreamOn, said Dirk Wössner, head of Deutsche Telekom’s German business. Their data traffic is not reduced from the high-speed allowance in the customers’ mobile tariff.
Almost a year after its launch, StreamOn now has more than one million users, said Wössner.
