DT officially kills its FMC offering

Deutsche Telekom confirmed that it has canceled its fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) service, called T-One. The officialese from DT is that it wants to focus on its mobile Internet services, which is in keeping with the company's recently announced new strategy. Light Reading claims that the service really failed to take off because it was "too expensive, poorly marketed and lacked compelling features." It also only worked on one handset model. The service had fewer than 10,000 subscribers since its launch last August, and it was a conflicting service with T-Mobile International's fixed-mobile substitution (FMS) offers.
