Netherlands - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband: 2018 Market Statistics & Analyses - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 4, 2018
The “Netherlands - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.Netherlands Regulator Imposes Wholesale Access Conditions on VodafoneZiggoIn common with other telecom markets in the region, the Dutch market is seeing a continuing decline in the fixed-line voice market as customers migrate to VoIP and mobile platforms for voice calls.In addition, the physical copper infrastructure is being replaced with fibre and as part of the process some customers in rural areas, where the cost of deploying fibre is prohibitive, will be served with 5G for voice and data services in coming years. This trend will gain pace once 5G becomes widely available from about 2022.

The country has one of the highest fixed broadband penetration rates in the world, with effective cross-platform competition between DSL and HFC networks further stimulated by numerous fibre deployments. By mid-2018 about a third of fixed-broadband connections provided data of at least 100Mb/s.
