upc cablecom sae its strongest growth ever in Internet connections in 2014, adding 65,600 new subscriptions across Switzerland. Revenue rose to CHF 1.294 billion over the twelve months of last year – a year-on-year increase of more than 4.6 per cent.
More than 1.387 million TV customers in Switzerland used a digital TV product from upc cablecom at the end of the year. The number of TV customers thus declined by 29,300 compared with the previous year, the lowest decline for five years. Demand for the Horizon multimedia platform, of which more than 220,000 devices are now in operation, is continuing to increase.
CEO of upc cablecom, Eric Tveter, commented: “With TV, Internet, telephony and now MyPrime and Wi-Free, today we are offering our customers a complete entertainment experience for at home and on the go. Although we are operating in a fiercely competitive market, we will be able to offer our customers in both markets even better products and services in 2015, which follows the creation of the Austria/Switzerland regional organisation of last year.”
