Unlimited mobile data: can it help T-Mobile and Tele2 in the Dutch market?

Wednesday 1 November 2017 | 12:38 CET | Author: Chiel Boerrigter | Market Commentary
Unlimited mobile data plans are a new thing on the Dutch market since the start of this year. T-Mobile started with an offer of unlimited calls, SMS and data for EUR 35 per month, and Tele2 followed in May with its own offer for EUR 25. In a market where it's increasingly difficult for providers to differentiate their offers and networks offer similar quality, this forms a new, de facto ceiling. We look below at the impact of unlimited data on the market so far, based on data from Telecompaper's Postpaid Insights report.
