KPN: 2014 preview

Monday 23 December 2013 | 14:22 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Wat awaits KPN in 2014? While a number of issues are well-know, we provide a few other possible scenarios for the Dutch incumbent. For Consumer Residential, its best-performing division, we expect competition to increase. Consumer Mobile will probably face more of a challenge from Ziggo, rather than Tele2, which is building its own LTE network. In Belgium, the question is whether KPN plans to sell this relatively small activity or invest in the operations to create a new growth driver.
