MVNOs down to 12.5% of Dutch mobile market, but still growing in no-frills segment

Thursday 15 July 2021 | 08:01 CET | News
Independent MVNOs have fallen to just 12.5 percent of customers on the Dutch mobile market as of March 2021, down 4.4 percent points from a year earlier, according to the latest research from Telecompaper. The decline in market share was due mainly to the largest MVNO Simpel being acquired by T-Mobile at the end of 2020 and becoming a second brand at that operator. Excluding Simpel, the number of customers at MVNOs rose over 5 percent in the past year, led by the 'no-frills', low-cost providers.
