Internet Security Threat Report 2014

German ISP T-Online reported a profit in the last quarter - three months ahead of schedule.

Europe's largest ISP said that EBITDA (earnings before interest etc) ran in at €28.8m, although almost all of it (€27.3m) came from the sale of its share in mobile services outfit T-Motion.

OK, so it's smoke and mirrors, but it's still a plus of €1.5m - a huge improvement on the EBITDA loss of €123m it racked up over the same period last year.

Revenues for Q2 were up 37 per cent to E738m. While most of this was made up from revenues based on access charges, T-Online reported that non-access revenues (such as income from advertising and paid content) was up 90 per cent to E152m and accounted for around a fifth of total revenue for the quarter.

Furthermore, execs at T-Online are confident that they will deliver positive EBITDA of between &euro30-40m for the full year, and around €130m for next year.

Indeed, the figures from the Deutsche Telecom-owned ISP contrast sharply with the fortunes of another major European ISP, which released its numbers for the quarter yesterday.

Tiscali slipped back into the red just three months after announcing it had reached break even. It revealed that the number of customers had also slipped. ®
