1&1 Drillisch leases spectrum to build its own 5G network

1&1 Drillisch leases spectrum to build its own 5G network

Maintal, 18 December 2019. As announced at the end of the 5G auction, 1&1 Drillisch AG will lease spectrum for the installation of its own 5G mobile network at Telefónica. This involves two frequency blocks of 10 MHz each in the 2.6 GHz band. Drillisch Online GmbH, a subsidiary of 1&1 Drillisch AG, and Telefónica Germany have now signed a respective contract. The agreement is based on a self-commitment by Telefónica as part of the EU antitrust approval of the merger with E-Plus in 2014. The two frequency blocks will be available to 1&1 Drillisch until 31 December 2025. The agreement is subject to the approval of the Federal Network Agency.

At the auction of spectrum in the 2 GHz and 3.6 GHz ranges, which ended in June 2019, 1&1 Drillisch acquired a total of two frequency blocks of 10 MHz in the 2 GHz band and five frequency blocks of 10 MHz in the 3.6 GHz band. While the 3.6 GHz spectrum is already available, the frequencies in the 2 GHz band will not be operational until 1 January 2026.

Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 Drillisch AG:

"With this agreement, we are taking a further step on the way to setting up our own 5G network. The spectrum rented from Telefónica bridges the period until our own frequency blocks in the 2 GHz range can be used.“

1&1 Drillisch builds mobile radio sites in rural areas - Contract signed with federal ministries

Maintal, September 06, 2019. 1&1 Drillisch concluded an agreement with the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) on the construction of mobile radio sites in so-called "white spots". The company is thus helping to close existing supply gaps, especially in rural areas.

With the construction of hundreds of antenna sites, 1&1 Drillisch is making a contribution to improving mobile communications coverage in rural regions. At the same time, 1&1 Drillisch benefits from the agreement on installment payments for the costs of the recently acquired 5G frequencies.

"With the construction of additional mobile communications sites, we are contributing to nationwide mobile communications coverage and making a contribution to ensuring that rural areas in particular are supplied with state-of-the-art technology. We very much welcome the fact that this expansion is taking place in cooperation with the three other network operators. This is a first step that impressively demonstrates the benefits of cooperation for consumers and network operators. Cooperation in mobile communications infrastructure will become even more important in the coming years, because no network operator will be able to build a high-performance 5G network for the whole of Germany alone," says Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 Drillisch AG. "By signing the contract with the federal government, we are underscoring our common goal of making Germany a lead market for 5G. At the
same time, the agreement fits in with our long-term financing strategy, which provides for the majority of the expenses for the construction of a modern 5G network to be met from current income," Dommermuth continued.

Changes in the Management Board of 1&1 Drillisch

Maintal, 28 June 2019. On 30 June 2019, Martin Witt (64), Chief Operating Officer (COO) of
1&1 Drillisch AG, will leave the company's Management Board. Witt has asked the Supervisory
Board not to extend his contract, which will expire at that time. After 1&1 Drillisch has
successfully acquired 5G spectrum at an auction, he intends to concentrate on his
responsibilities as CEO of 1&1 Telecommunication SE and as CEO of Drillisch Netz AG and will
devote all his attention to the development of a modern mobile network, the procurement of
network services and the representation of interests in regulatory matters.


Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 Drillisch AG, explains:
"We look forward to continuing our cooperation with Martin Witt. At the same time, we would like
to thank him for the very good and successful time on the Management Board of 1&1 Drillisch
AG, for numerous impulses and for his great personal commitment. Mr. Witt has made a
significant contribution to our success in recent years."


Martin Witt's successor as COO of 1&1 Drillisch AG will be Alessandro Nava (47) from 1 July.
In this role, Nava will combine the Management Board divisions "Technology and Development",
"Product Management" and "Operations, Customer Care" under his leadership. Nava has been
a member of the board of 1&1 Telecommunication SE since March 2014 and is responsible for
technology and product management.


There will be another change in the financial division at the end of the year: André Driesen (49),
CFO of 1&1 Drillisch AG, will leave the Management Board on 31 December 2019. Driesen has
requested the early termination of his contract in order to be able to face new challenges outside
1&1 Drillisch AG. The Supervisory Board respects this request, especially as André Driesen has
been with the company and its legal predecessors for more than 18 years.


Ralph Dommermuth emphasizes:
"The Supervisory Board and Management Board colleagues of 1&1 Drillisch AG wish André
Driesen all the best and good luck for his future professional and private life. We are deeply
grateful for his important achievements and successes over all these years, especially in the
context of the merger between 1&1 and Drillisch and the subsequent integration of the two
companies.


Driesen's successor will be Markus Huhn (51), previously CFO of 1&1 Telecommunication SE.
Huhn has been CFO of 1&1 Telecommunication SE for 12 years. Preparations for the new
position will take place over the next few months in close cooperation with André Driesen.
