Please find below two interesting quotes from the last financial report of Deutsche Telekom


Toll system

“Toll4Europe GmbH commences business activities. In April 2017, T-Systems together with Daimler AG and DKV EURO SERVICE GmbH + Co. KG established Toll4Europe GmbH for the development and provision of a European Electronic Toll System (EETS) for vehicles over 3.5 metric tons. T-Systems owns 55 percent of Toll4Europe and governs the business. A toll box that can be used across Europe is scheduled to be launched on the market in 2018. The box is to initially cover Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Poland. Hungary, Italy, Portugal, and Spain are also to be incorporated by market launch or as soon as possible thereafter.”

Croatia to build state-owned operator

“EU subsidies for Croatia. On June 6, 2017, the EU Commission granted its approval for EU subsidies for Croatia. The Croatian government plans to use this money to fund a state-owned network operator. This possibility is also being discussed in Greece. The development increases the risk of a massive distortion of competition and of other countries following suit.”
