Austria’s largest cable operator UPC Austria has acquired 8,100 new internet customers in Q3 2014.

The Liberty Global subsidiary’s total internet customer figure thereby rose by 1.8% to a total of 455,100.

The telephony service recorded 5,700 additions – an increase by 1.6% to a total of 365,600 customers.

The number of TV customers, however, dropped by 2,400 to 520,700 customers. The figures reflect the strong competition with IPTV providers such as A1 Telekom Austria and DVB-T2 platform simpliTV.
