Tele2 Netherlands revenues up 2.6%, customer growth slows

Tuesday 21 July 2015 | 09:40 CET | News
Tele2 Netherlands added another 7,000 mobile customers in the second quarter, for a total 841,000. This was the slowest growth since late 2011. Fixed broadband customers fell by 5,000 to 355,000, and fixed telephony subscribers also dropped by 5,000 to 64,000. Tele2 said it was on track to complete its new LTE-Advanced network by Q1 2016 and was already at 80 percent outdoor coverage. However, the start-up costs led to an EBITDA loss of SEK 71 million at its mobile activities in the quarter, widening from a loss of SEK 23 million a year ago. Total EBITDA was down 46 percent to SEK 147
