Orange leads growth in Belgian mobile market in Q1 as Telenet, Proximus struggle

Monday 6 May 2019 | 16:17 CET | News
Compared to the end of 2018, Orange added a net 63,000 new customers, while Proximus lost 16,000 and Telenet/Base shed another 26,000 mobile customers. This confirms the trend started in early 2017 when Orange relaunched its fixed services offer, with discounts and extra data for customers already taking its mobile services. The operator has been growing steadily since then, narrowing the gap in mobile market share with leader Proximus.
