Belgian MVNO market shrinks after Telenet exit

Wednesday 1 February 2017 | 17:38 CET | News
The Belgian virtual operator market shrunk to 12.5 million SIMs at the end of September 2016 from 13.1 million six months earlier, according to Telecompaper's latest research. The decline was due largely to Telenet exiting the market and becoming a full mobile operator with the acquisition of Base. As a result, the VOs share of the total mobile market in Belgium dropped to 16 percent in Q3 2016 from 23 percent a year earlier.
