Cable matches DSL market share in Dutch broadband - ACM

Friday 30 May 2014 | 10:22 CET | News
Use of mobile data services doubled in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the year-earlier period, and for the first time cable operators had as many broadband customers as DSL providers, according to regulator ACM's latest market monitor. Mobile data traffic grew 50 percent in 2013 to 33.9 petabytes (33.9 billion MB). Almost 10.8 million devices had mobile internet access at year-end, of which around 10 million smartphones. SMS traffic continued to fall sharply in 2013, to 5.3 billion messages from 7.8 billion a year earlier. Mobile voice traffic edged up 2 percent to 23 billion minutes.
