Cable passes 100 million RGUs in Europe
28 Jan 11 -
There are now more than 102 cable revenue-generating units across Europe according to figures from industry body Cable Europe.
The number of RGUs increased in 2010 from 98.3 million last year. This comes ahead of the annual Cable Congress event, which is being held in Switzerland next month, that will see speakers including Mike Fries, president and chief executive of Liberty Global and Kabel Deutschland CEO Adrian von Hammerstein. "Europe's cable industry is constantly investing to create the best value and user experience for its customers. Passing the 100 million mark reflects the growing appetite of our customers for digital interactive television," said Cable Europe president Manuel Kohnstamm.
