Belgian operator Proximus said that it increased TV subscriptions by 7.3% in the second quarter to a total of 1.82 million.

Announcing its Q2 results, the company said it now accounts for 35.6% of Belgium’s digital TV market and 46.3% of its fixed internet.

Overall Proximus grew its domestic customer base for fixed internet, TV and post-paid mobile for both the Proximus and the Scarlet brand.

The company said the consumer business strengthened its portfolio further by shifting towards high-value, low-churn, triple- and quad-play households and small offices.

“In spite of a changing competitive environment, we continued to grow our customer base, increasing our market shares for fixed internet and digital TV, and improved our customer mix by shifting towards higher value tripe- and quad-play offers,” said Proximus CEO, Dominique Leroy.

“We continued our transformation in line with our Fit for Growth Strategy with a focus on reducing costs, simplifying, and becoming a more customer-focused, agile and efficient company.”

Overall the firm reported domestic revenue growth of 0.7% to €1.10 billion and group underlying EBITDA growth of 1.7% to €463 million.
