When living in Germany, admittedly many years ago, l can't say l noticed the trains were more punctual than the UK. Apart from one 18-month period in the UK l have not had to make a regular commute on trains though, so commuters may have different experiences.
Looking at the report which l think you're referring to it is about long-distance trains, and such statistics always seem to concentrate on this - they don't report on regional or local networks. But most of us don't use long distance trains every day, reports on the local networks might be more illuminating.
