Com Hem Q4 EBITDA hit by Tele2 merger fees, discontinues fibre new build plans

Tuesday 23 January 2018 | 12:44 CET | News
Com Hem has announced a rise in revenue and addressable footprint in the fourth quarter, but EBITDA slipped partly because of fees in connection with the recently announced plans to merge with Tele2. Boxer lost unique customers, but Com Hem is confident of turning it around. Com Hem has decided not to scale up fibre deployments at new builds beyond its trial area, as its strategy of linking to third party infrastructure is showing success.
