Growth in the number of subscribers in the Dutch mobile market stalled towards the end of 2013, and has continued to slow into 2014. This reflects the maturity of the market, and high penetration. In common with other advanced European markets, the 3G and 4G sectors are the main drivers. Market revenue has also been affected in recent quarters, mainly by regulatory measures on termination rates and roaming tariffs, as well as on the general economic state of the country and by consumer adoption of alternative messaging services, which has reduced the volume of SMS traffic.

Following the acquisition of Orange by T-Mobile in late 2007 there are only three network operators in the market. All provide wholesale services to MVNOs and resellers, and having reached 90% population coverage on their 3G networks they have focussed on HSPA and LTE infrastructure as a basis for developing mobile data services. Continuing growth in mobile data has stimulated the MNOs to trial broadcast TV services. Additional pressure on MNOs is likely to come from new regulations which ended the restriction by which SIM cards were owned only by MNOs, essentially paving the way for private network operators to develop M2M and other services.
This report provides statistics and analyses on the Dutch mobile market, including a review of the key operators and regulatory issues. It also assesses emerging mobile data services such as mobile TV, and provides ARPU and 3G forecasts to 2015.

Key developments:

KPN trials live TV services over its LTE network; government legalises carrier-free SIM cards; KPN trials LTE broadcasts with Ericsson, providing content simultaneously to a virtually unlimited number of users; Vodafone and KPN extend reach of commercial LTE services; Telfort launches its own LTE service; MNOs join with banks to launch m-payments system; KPN seeks regulatory approval to sell German unit E-Plus to Telefónica; Liberty Global acquires remaining stake in Ziggo for 10 billion; KPN sells more of its mobile tower portfolio; decline in SMS as consumers switch to online messaging services; Ziggo launches as an MVNO; calls via mobile phones supersede fixed line calls for the first time; T-Mobile and Tele2 sign network sharing agreement; M2M numbers allocated; T-Mobile Netherlands deploys HSPA+ offering 21Mb/s; regulator market data for Q3 2013; telcos' operating and financial data to Q1 2014; market developments to mid-2014.
