Market players & Consumer behaviour

Telecom is a dynamic market, full of cycles. New developments attract new players, followed by a period of consolidation and some players exiting the market. Which players are active at the moment in the Dutch market and how are they positioned? What’s their strategy and how do they react to others? We also looks at consumers – what products and services are they interested in and how do they use them?

Trends and development

Like in any market, it’s important to look at not just the players but also the context. The telecom market is characterised by regulation on various fronts, and this affects how it operates. The supply chain and product substitution are issues also under contsant development and in need of close monitoring.

Opportunities and growth

All the big players in the Dutch telecom market are actively developing FTTH, 5G and FMC services. For these important opportunities, we take a closer look at where the growth is, and who are the expected winners and losers.
