The VATM represents more than ninety telecommunications and multimedia companies active in the German market. All of them compete with the ex-monopolist Deutsche Telekom AG. The Association represents about 80 percent of the private service providers in this sector by revenue. Since 1998 competitors made investments of more than 58.1 billion €. Since 2002, they made significantly more than 50 per cent of the total investments in the market annually. In Germany they secure directly over 54.300 jobs. The Association seeks to create competitive conditions that will provide all participants in the market with a fair chance to succeed, and to operate in a stable regulatory framework and investment climate. A significant function of the VATM is the public presentation of the common interests of its member companies. Its demands on policymakers and regulators as well as its comments and interpretations of decisions relevant to the market are conveyed via regular press releases. Its analyses of the telecommunications markets as well as various studies of specific problem areas further improve and sensitize the general public for the situation of the competitive carriers. Its offices in Brussels and Berlin enable the Association to intensify the necessary dialogue with relevant institutions and political decision makers.
