KPN, Ziggo and Tele2: OTT competition drives focus on LTE, FTTH and Wi-Fi

Friday 25 October 2013 | 15:40 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The results season is in full swing, and KPN, Tele and Ziggo have all reported Q3 figures. KPN's results were not good; out of the revenue lines reported by the Dutch incumbent, only Consumer Residential and E-Plus were growing, and E-Plus will soon be sold. At the EBITDA level, only Consumer Residential showed growth. The reasons are well known: price pressure from competition, delayed orders from clients due to the weak economy, regulation, and above all, the transition to 'new' services.
