KPN Q4: time to gather forces for a response to Docsis 3.1

Friday 1 February 2019 | 12:32 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
KPN's fourth-quarter results offered few surprises and the company left its outlook unchanged. Revenues are still falling slowly, while the margin is more or less stable. What's happening with the underlying trends? Where are the biggest threats? The falling ARPU on the business mobile market is worrying, and the arrival of Docsis 3.1 is cause for concern, to put it lightly. Partnerships - with wholesale customers, FTTH operators and OTT providers - are the way forward. Connectivity, both fixed and mobile, remains the company's core competence.
