SFR most profitable Belgium operator, Proximus most stable

Wednesday 23 March 2016 | 15:05 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Five operators in the Belgian market report detailed enough financial results to analyse their cost base: Proximus (previously Belgacom), Mobistar (soon Orange), SFR (previously Numericable, owned by Altice) and the merger partners Telenet (Liberty Global) and Base (previously KPN). The figures show a stable financial basis at Proximus, while SFR is the most profitable operator. Base has thin profit margins, but has been improving in the run-up to its merger with Telenet. Mobistar has been preparing its launch on cable networks, but this has had limited impact on its costs.
