FRANKFURT May 2 (Reuters) - Telefonica Deutschland agreed with Deutsche Telekom to use the German rival's land-line services network more heavily from next year.

The two companies said in a joint statement on Thursday they would widen their existing cooperation gradually until 2019, helping Deutsche Telekom to share the risks of investing in its high-speed data network. (Reporting by Ludwig Burger)
