2012: FTTH versus cable, mobile newcomers, enhanced TV services

, published: January 2012
In this research brief Telecompaper looks at expected developments in the Dutch telecom market during 2012. The focus is on Dutch players and their activities on the consumer market plus the most important international developments expected to influence the Dutch market. The mobile market will be busy with the spectrum auction, which will be held in the autumn, tariff structure changes and the battle among smartphone manufacturers. We offer our views about possible consolidation as well as other developments including mobile security, M2M and mobile payments. On the fixed network market, the ongoing race between cable and DSL as the most important infrastructures for broadband and telephony services will be replaced by the battle between FTTH and cable. Operators will also focus on refining their triple-play offerings with additional services like OTT TV, music streaming and premium TV channels. Finally we offer insight on the regulations covering net neutrality and tariff ceilings, which are being implemented or proposed by the European Commission, the Dutch government and Dutch telecommunications regulator Opta.
