Dutch mobile revenues fall 4% in 2016 to EUR 4.7 bln

Monday 20 March 2017 | 08:42 CET | News
The Dutch mobile market contracted by 3.9 percent in 2016 to EUR 4.7 billion, a bigger decline than the 3.3 percent drop in 2015. Vodafone and T-Mobile lost the most revenues and also market share, according to the latest Dutch Mobile Operators report from Telecompaper. The market suffered from price pressure due to tough competition, as well as falling out-of-bundle revenues. Changes in consumer behaviour, such as the shift to IP messaging and video, and the cuts to EU roaming rates and other regulation also impacted sales.
