Mixed picture within TDC

November 1, 2013 09.07 Europe/London By Julian Clover

A case of swings and roundabouts for TDCís dual brand strategy. The Danish telco grew the number of customers to TDC TV by 1.3 percentage points, but these were more of less ofset by the 25,000 decline at cablenet YouSee caused by the loss of organised customers.

Despite this revenues and gross profit increased across all brands. TV ARPU decreased by DKK6 vs. Q2, due to migration to smaller TV packages under the YouSee brand and a one off boost in Q2 from a pay-per-view boxing event.

Revenue from TV increased by DKK 181 million (24.3 million) or 6.2%, continuing the growth from previous years.
