Swiss telecoms market Q1: Sunrise and Salt grow at expense of Swisscom and UPC; overall profitability high

Monday 9 July 2018 | 15:44 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The four largest operators on the Swiss market had combined revenues of CHF 3.24 billion in Q1 2018. That was down 0.5 percent year-on-year, but the combined EBITDA margin was to 40.8 percent (Q1 2017: 42.2%). With capex down to just 15.1 percent of revenues, at CHF 489 million, free cash flow peaked at CHF 835 billion. Sunrise and Salt are growing at the expense of Swisscom and UPC CH, as the market embraces FMC (fixed/mobile convergence).
