KPN blames Digitenne price increase on fewer customers

Tuesday 19 May 2015 | 11:17 CET | News
KPN said its earlier announced price increase for the Digitenne DTT service is due to a falling number of subscribers for the service. In a message to customers, the operator said more and more subscribers are switching to its multi-play plans with IPTV. Digitenne is planned to increase in price to EUR 14 per month from 28 June, from EUR 12.50 currently. According to Telecompaper figures, Digiteene has gone from around 850,000 customers and a monthly price of EUR 8.50 in early 2010 to just 478,000 customers at the end of March this year.
