DT is the German incumbent telecom operator. As of YE17, the German state still owns approximately 32% of the company. The group reports 168 mn mobile subs and 27.9 mn fixed-network lines at YE17.

DT is generally #1 or #2 in its markets, with the notable exception of T-Mobile US where it is the 3rd largest mobile operator. Since January 2014, Tim Hoettges has been CEO, and Thomas Dannenfeldt has been CFO. (20 Sep 2018)
