Dutch telecom market Q1: free cash flow under pressure in transition period

Wednesday 15 June 2016 | 13:44 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background

As in the previous quarter, we look here at the profitability of the major operators, based on revenues and costs (opex and capex). Ziggo is still performing best, and KPN showed some improvement. Vodafone NL and T-Mobile NL posted weaker results, and Tele2 NL's cash flow is deep in the red.
