Dutch FTTH market to grow to 3.5 million homes passed in 2017

Houten, The Netherlands, 14 June 2013 - The Dutch FTTH market expanded to 1.45 million homes passed at the end of 2012. Of the total, 483,000 lines were actually used (homes activated), according to Telecompaper's annual FTTH report. The Telecompaper FTTH Monitor, a detailed database on FTTH progress in the Netherlands, shows that the ratio of homes activated versus homes passed increased from 30 to 33 percent last year. Telecompaper now estimates 3.47 million FTTH lines by 2017.

Reggefiber is the market leader with an 89 percent share of homes passed in 2012, although its main competitor CIF added 5 percent to its market share. CIF now has a market share of 8 percent.

The new report, FTTH Netherlands 2013, also provides an overview of the state of the Dutch FTTH market at the level of the individual twelve provinces, with a detailed comparison of 2012 versus 2013. From our assessment of the market on a provincial level, we see that Flevoland (HP penetration 64%, HA penetration 22%) and Overijssel (HP penetration 42%, HA penetration 12%) lead, while Zeeland is lagging (virtually no FTTH).

The report provides a short overview of what happened in the past year at big and small FTTH players. Reggefiber attracted another EIB loan. KPN received permission for the takeover of four Reggeborgh service providers, winning a market share of about 90 percent on the Reggefiber networks. CIF announced a number of takeovers and joint ventures. Vodafone recently bought Wiericke, which will boost its FTTH goals. Tele2 entered the market. Several major and new players are presented, and there are brief discussions on a number of hot issues in the (international) broadband and FTTH markets.
