Net income in accordance with German GAAP increased by EUR 6.15 billion to EUR 7.4 billion over the previous year's figure.

Mobile communication subsidiaries in which Deutsche Telekom holds a majority recorded net growth in the number of subscribers of almost 15.4 million new subscribers in the 2000 financial year. In Germany alone, the number of T-D1 subscribers increased by approximately 10 million. The strongest month for growth was December 2000, in which T-D1 gained approximately 1.6 million new subscribers. Our mobile communications subsidiary in the United Kingdom, One 2 One, also developed very pleasingly, almost doubling its number of subscribers compared with the previous year. Growth in Austria was lower as a result of the considerably higher mobile communications penetration rate.

With 7.9 million subscribers, T-Online is expanding its market leadership in Europe further. T-Online gained more than 3.2 million new subscribers, and the number of subscribers abroad is currently over 1.4 million.

Growth in the number of ISDN channels continued unabated at 30 %. The demand for high data transmission speeds and the broadband solutions based on them is increasing constantly among Deutsche Telekom's customers. Approximately 628,000 T-DSL lines were marketed in the course of the T-DSL campaign. This far exceeds our target of 500,000 customers. By the end of the year 2000, Deutsche Telekom had already attracted more than 4.5 million customers for its AktivPlus economy tariff. This is five times the number in the previous year.

With the exception of historical information, the matters discussed in this release are forward-looking statements that involve risks identified in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
