KPN had 368,000 FTTH subscribers at New Year’s. The figure grew sharply compared to previous quarters, boosted by the acquisition of a number of service providers, as well as by organic growth. In October, KPN asked Dutch competition watchdog the NMa for permission to take over Concepts, XMS, Edutel and KickXL.
The operator added 126,000 FTTH customers in the fourth quarter. Of the total number, 109,000 take TV services (60,000 IPTV and 49,000 analogue), 100,000 take triple-play, and 116,000 broadband. It is not known how many customers each individual service provider has. In Q2 2012, KPN bought Lijbrandt, raising FTTH customer numbers by 13,000.
Not counting acquisitions, KPN’s FTTH customer base increased by 44,000 in Q4. In Q3 the number rose by 34,000.
At the end of 2011, KPN had 102,000 FTTH customers, an increase of 361 percent from the year before. At the end of Q3 2012, the number 198,000, up 85 percent from the previous quarter.
