Altibox aims to compete for 700,000 potential customers in Danish fibre deregulation

Friday 9 February 2018 | 11:58 CET | News
Norwegian regional utility Lyse said the Danish arm of its Altibox broadband and television division could be competing for 700,000 potential customers when Denmark's fibre network is deregulated at the end of 2018 or start of 2019. Lyse said the liberalisation also means that Altibox Danmark's current 30,000 customers might switch to another internet provider, but the Danish unit's CEO Soren Harding says any losses will be made up for by gains.
