Telenet: 1m digital

April 28, 2010

Telenet, the Belgian MSO, had 1,065,000 digital homes as of March 31, 2010 but is still losing basic analogue subscribers to the fierce competition from Belgacom, which offers 'free' TV with a number of its broadband and telephony packages.

During the first quarter 144,000 new customers signed up. Digital TV added 65,000 homes, while 34,000 more took broadband, 23,000 mobile and 22,000 fixed telephony.

Average ARPU of digital and mulitplay customers rose to €37.70 during the quarter.
