Deutsche Telekom AG Template:NYSE (abbreviated DTAG) is the biggest German telecommunications company. It was formerly the telecommunications branch of the state-owned monopolist Deutsche Bundespost, which was split into three parts and privatized in 1996.

On March 10, 2003, Deutsche Telekom reported an annual loss of €24.6 billion due to the depreciation of intangible assets.

On July 16, 2002 the former CEO Ron Sommer stepped down due to pressure and dissatisfaction from stock holders and the German government. For a transitional period of 6 months, the 72 year old Helmut Sihler was appointed as his successor. On November 15, 2002 Kai-Uwe Ricke, former chief of the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Mobile, was appointed CEO of Deutsche Telekom AG.

On October 8, 2004 it has annonced its intention to buy the remaining 26.07% of T-Online shares at the market price of €8.99. They were sold in 2000 three times more.
