Tele2 Netherlands grew its customer base for the first time in years in the second quarter, taking the number of revenue-generating units from 966,000 to 980,000. The growth came in the mobile market, where the operator has posted positive net additions for three quarters now, including 32,000 in Q2. This was even better than Vodafone, which added 17,000. Tele2 now has a total 372,000 mobile customers, up 13 percent from a year ago. At the same time, the company continues to lose customers on the broadband market, as it remains focused on the DSL market, with little to no presence in FTTH.
