Belgian operators cut opex ahead of increase in capex

Thursday 29 December 2016 | 14:21 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Belgium's three largest telecom operators increased their sales by 10 percent in the third quarter of 2016. The increase was driven by Telenet's takeover of mobile operator Base. Excluding this, revenues were up 0.8 percent to a total EUR 2.037 billion.
