1&1 signs further contract with a leading tower company:
American Tower Corporation to partner in the roll-out of the 1&1 mobile network

Maintal, April 21st, 2022. 1&1 Mobilfunk GmbH, a subsidiary of 1&1 AG, and ATC Germany Holdings GmbH, the German subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (ATC), have signed a framework contract to lease antenna sites for the efficient roll-out of the fourth German mobile network.

As an independent owner of transmission towers, ATC is one of the world's leading providers of wireless telecommunications infrastructure, with nearly 15,000 communications sites in Germany. Under the agreement, ATC will provide 1&1 access to its communications sites for the installation of the 1&1 high-performance antennas.

The parties will closely work together to identify colocation availabilities for sites that can be phased into operation in the near future. Each site will have a lease term of 20 years which can be extended by 1&1 multiple times.

"With ATC, we have a third strong partner for passive network infrastructure, which ideally complements our mast portfolio. We are looking forward to the cooperation and to jointly driving the roll-out of Europe's first newly-built virtual OpenRAN," says Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 AG.

This exciting new partnership with 1&1 positions us for further growth," says Pieter Nel, CEO Europe, American Tower.
