Telenet grows digital and post-paid mobile subscribers

Belgian cable operator Telenet added 116,700 net digital TV customers in the first half of the year, including 71,300 in the second quarter.

Triple-play customers grew 9% to 818,700 at the end of June, representing 38% of the company’s customer base. The operator also added 17,600 post-paid mobile customers in the quarter.

Telenet ended the first half with 2.152 million cable TV subscribers, down 4% due to a 30% drop in analogue customers. Digital TV customers numbered 1.472 million, up 17% and broadband customers numbered 1.339 million, up 6%. Fixed telephony subs were up 9% to 920,200, while mobile customers were up 21% to 275,400. Overall ARPU per customer relationship was up 10% to €45.10.

Telenet posted revenues of €727 million for the first half, up 9% year-on-year, with a slight tailing off of growth in the second quarter due to lower standalone handset sales, which it said was due to a shortage of Apple iPhone 4S inventory.
