Post Luxembourg reports continuing growth in the telecoms sector

Overall revenue from electronic communications services in Luxembourg has increased steadily during the last two years though revenue remains under pressure from regulatory measures on areas such as interconnection tariffs and roaming charges, as also by lower consumer use of fixed-line voice services and by the prevalence of VoIP/VoBB over traditional PSTN lines. In combination with fixed-mobile substitution, strong growth in VoIP/VoBB services has meant that Luxembourg has one of the lowest fixed-line densities in Europe.

In recent years the incumbent telco POST Telecom (formerly P&T Luxembourg) has concentrated on cloud and managed services, as well as on offering bundled packages. The company offers a 100Mb/s service nationally, while the footprint of its 1Gb/s service is making gains in line with the government's program to provide a 1Gb/s service to all citizens by 2020, and to make Luxembourg the first fully fibred country in Europe.

Investment in infrastructure has been stimulated by these ambitions, though during the last two years investment in both fixed-line and mobile networks has been curtailed.

High mobile penetration has slowed subscriber growth in the mobile market since 2005, while a recent law requiring that SIM cards be registered may have an adverse effect on the number of mobile subscribers for 2017 as network operators deactivate unregistered cards.

Key developments:

POST Telecom intending 5G launch by 2020;
Telenet acquires Altice's subsidiary SFR Luxembourg;
New MTRs comes into force;
SIM card registration obligation may affect mobile subscriber base;
POST Group reports 5.6% revenue growth in 2017, reflecting the strength of its broadband and TV offerings;
Telenet acquires the cableco Coditel from Altice for 400 million;
Report update includes the regulator's market data for 2016, State Statistics Office market data to December 2016; telcos' financial and operating data to Q1 2018, recent market developments.
