Proximus fixed base boosted by TV

Belgian telecom operator Proximus added 14,000 TV customers in the first quarter to take its total to 1.575 million, up 3.9% year-on-year.

Proximus said that its fixed services base overall was boosted by its growing TV and internet base for both its Proximus and low-cost Scarlet brands.

The company’s fixed internet customer base grew to 1,996 million at the end of March, with 14,000 lines added over the first quarter.

The company’s mobile contract customer base grew by 29,000 to 3.907 million.

On the downside Proximus saw its fixed voice base decline by 29,000, down 3.2%.

The company’s underlying revenue increased slightly to €1.121 billion for Q1, again driven by fixed data and TV, which compensated steadily eroding fixed-voice revenues. Underlying revenue was stable at €1.441 billion, down 0.2%.

CEO Dominique Leroy said that Proximus was off to a “good start” with “good traction of our all-in offers Tuttimus and Bizz All-in, growing to 404,000 by end-March 2018”.
