Vodafone says its agreement with Liberty Global in Germany and Central Europe has enabled it to become Germany’s ‘Converged Gigabit Challenger’ with 55.2 million SIM connections and 13.5 million TV subscribers.
Over the last 12 months it has expanded the number of homes in its gigabit capable footprint from 9.7 million to 21.8 million. The percentage represents 90% of Vodafone’s cable area.
However, subscriber numbers fell by 85,000 in the quarter to September 30, as a result of a lack of commercial activity during the Covid-19 pandemic. In August, Vodafone launched a new ‘harmonised’ offer bringing Vodafone TV to the Unitymedia footprint.
TV grew in Spain with the new ‘boxless’ TV proposition encouraging 114,000 customer additions.
VodafoneZiggo, which was the first operator to launch 5G in the Netherlands, now offers 1 Gigabit speeds in more than two million homes with another 1 million due to come on line before the end of the year.
In all Vodafone’s TV proposition now reaches 22 million subscribers in 11 markets.
