Belgian telecom market Q4: Telenet strongest as Proximus looks to FTTH, Orange to cable

Thursday 23 March 2017 | 16:51 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The top three Belgian operators generated total revenues of EUR 2.078 billion in Q4 2016. After correcting for Telenet's takeover of Base at the start of the year, underlying growth was 1.1 percent. Proximus and Telenet gave similar guidance for 2017, targeting stable revenues. Both are investing heavily in their networks, removing some of the worries of a duopoly. Both are also using content to differente. Orange aims to grow its cable base to 400,000 customers within five years. As a nationwide cable operator, it will most likely win over customers on the low end of the market.
