T-Mobile NL: becoming a smart attacker or just window dressing?

Wednesday 16 December 2015 | 12:34 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
T-Mobile Netherlands is working to break out of its status as mobile-only operator. Or 'smart attacker', as its parent company Deutsche Telekom calls it. First it announced new services for the business market, with its Cloud & Clear offering developed with Mitel, then it partnered with Eurofiber for business fibre services. The operator has now announced plans to market 4G as a home broadband service and to launch next year an OTT TV service called Knippr. The company is moving beyond its traditional market of mobile services for consumers. The question is whether it's too little, too late.
