Deutsche Telekom and social network Path have formed a strategic partnership, according to an announcement touted on Thursday.
Deutsche Telekom says its customers can use the premium version of Path for one year free of charge.
“Deutsche Telekom counts on partnerships to promote innovation,” says Michael Hagspihl, Managing Director for Marketing at Telekom Deutschland GmbH. “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to use innovative services like Path,” Hagspihl says. “This strategic partnership demonstrates how two companies can consolidate their strengths for the benefit of their customers.”
During yesterday’s announcement, Path once again touted how it puts privacy first.
“We are thrilled to be able to introduce our Path app to Deutsche Telekom’s customers as part of our partnership,” says Dave Morin, CEO at Path. “Path’s numbers in the European market are increasing steadily and we are very pleased that Deutsche Telekom customers will get exclusive, free access to our new premium service.”
