According to VodafoneZiggo,




VodafoneZiggo has 960,000 customers with combined subscription
According to VodafoneZiggo, in the past quarter, 960,000 households were using their subscriptions, combining mobile services with TV and internet. That is an increase of 52 percent compared to the same quarter in 2017.

Of the total number of 3,903,300 fixed subscribers, 960,000 households are using combined subscriptions. Of the approximately 3,000,000 mobile customers eligible, 1,380,000 owners of a mobile SIM card have a combined subscription.

Customers who purchase these subscriptions receive a doubling of the mobile data, an additional TV package and an Internet security package. Being able to offer these ‘quad-play’ subscriptions is one of the reasons why Ziggo and Vodafone have merged in the Netherlands. In April 2017 VodafoneZiggo introduced these subscriptions.

According to VodafoneZiggo , it received 25,500 new mobile customers with a fixed subscription in the second quarter. In the same quarter last year that figure was 19,000 and in the first quarter of 2018 the customer base with a fixed mobile subscription still grew by 30,000 customers. The number of customers with prepaid plan fell by 56,600, resulting in the provider losing 31,100 mobile customers.

In the past quarter, the company welcomed 12,400 new broadband customers, an increase of thirty percent compared to the same quarter last year. In the same period in 2017 there were still 5,500 customers in telephony, but that figure was a decrease of 10,300 in the past quarter. On the television market, the provider also lost more than 10,000 customers, although this decline does decline. In the same quarter in 2017, 23,000 television customers disappeared.

Sales fell by five percent to 935 million euros. In addition, the company recorded a loss of 5 million euros, whereas a year earlier a modest profit of 46 million euros was booked. VodafoneZiggo blames the drop in turnover, among other things, by applying new accounting and accounting principles. The company also states that the lower figures are partly caused by the abolition of roaming in the EU and a decrease in the termination rates . These are the tariffs that providers charge each other when a customer calls someone on a competitor’s network.

The quarterly figures show that VodafoneZiggo had a total of 3,903,300 regular customers in the second quarter of 2018, while that figure in the same quarter in the same year stood at 3,936,300 customers with a subscription.
