Yes, in 9 short words Deutsche Telekom tonight announced that it has (finally) entered into an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone to its network.
In its official press release issued tonight, the company noted:
The higher investment volume is to be used to roll out the broadband infrastructure in Germany and the United States in particular. In the mobile communications network, this will be done using the state-of-the-art technology LTE. Around EUR 6 billion is earmarked for rolling out the broadband infrastructure in the German fixed network with optical fiber and vectoring between 2013 and 2020. In addition, T-Mobile USA has entered into an agreement with Apple to bring products to market together in 2013.
News that the network is gearing up to offer the smartphone handset to its customers beginning next year, follows a report back in August, which appeared to outline an internal plan drawn up T-Mobile management to train the company’s own staff in the ability to “sell against the iPhone.”
