10 December 2007
The total Dutch consumer telephony market grew by
39,000 connections during the third quarter of 2007 to 5.69 million,
driven by a growing number of Wholesale Line Rental (WLR) users and
increased growth for cable VoIP, according to Telecompaper's quarterly
update on the Dutch fixed telephony market. The number of WLR customers
grew by 103,000 to 283,000 on 30 September 2007. The number of Dutch
consumer VoIP subscriptions grew 7.9 percent to 2.37 million.
number of DSL-based VoIP subscriptions grew at a slower rate than cable
VoIP subscriptions: 6.4 percent compared with 9.5 percent. This means
cable VoIP regained its position as the leading VoIP technology in the
Netherlands with 1.178 million customers on 30 September 2007, compared
to 1.165 million DSL VoIP customers on the same date.
