KPN grows TV base and prepares to expand IPTV coverage

Dutch telco KPN had 1.033 million TV customers as of March 31, according to its latest quarterly financial report.

The majority of the operator’s TV customers are to digital-terrestrial service Digitenne. However, KPN’s IPTV service saw stronger relative growth in the first quarter.

KPN said it had a 42% share of the Dutch broadband market at the end of the quarter, including about 31,000 fibre-to-the-home customers. The telco said its VDSL upgrade was now almost complete, allowing it to offer IPTV services to 80% of households and HDTV services to 70%.
