The number of mobile subscribers in the Dutch market has continued to grow strongly, though much of this growth can be attributed to the M2M and mobile broadband sectors. Slower growth in traditional SIM cards is partly the result of higher mobile penetration and also to competition on pricing which has meant that subscribers have less cause to acquire SIM cards from different providers to capitalise on cheaper on-net tariffs. In common with other European markets, the LTE sector is the main driver, supported by the combination of high smartphone penetration, competitive pricing for mobile data bundles, and the universal coverage of LTE networks provided by the network operators. In some rural areas with poor fixed-line broadband coverage MNOS offer LTE services as a fixed broadband replacement.

Market revenue has been affected in recent quarters as a result of competition and regulatory measures on termination rates and roaming tariffs, as well as by consumer adoption of alternative messaging services, which has reduced the volume of SMS traffic.

The mobile market is concentrated, with the triopoly of T-Mobile Netherlands, KPN and Vodafone Netherlands supplemented by a good number of MVNOs and resellers. MNOs have focussed on HSPA and LTE infrastructure as a basis for developing mobile data services, while a 5G research platform was set up in late 2016 as a test bed for future applications and services based on the anticipated 5G standard. Additional pressure on MNOs is coming 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, and an assessment of emerging mobile data services such as mobile TV, LTE-B and developments in carrier aggregation technologies.
