(Telecompaper) The expansion of fibre broadband in the Netherlands is at risk due to competitive operators duplicating networks, the ACM warned. The competition and telecom regulator's fibre market study suggests operators should cooperate more on the roll-out and local authorities can do more to stop duplicate networks. 

(Telecompaper) Global tech distributor Ingram Micro has confirmed that it is will close down its South African business because of the relatively small size of its operations there. It cited the limited number of product lines that are available in South Africa as a reason for its decision, too. Ingram Micro will continue to offer services to South African customers from Europe, which it believes will allow it to "provide a more robust suite of offerings".

(Telecompaper) The Italian mobile market added a total of 3.0 million lines in the 12 months to end of June 2019, due mainly to a 4.3 million rise in M2M lines, which offset a 1.3 million decline in traditional human SIMs, according to the latest report from regulator Agcom corresponding to the second quarter of 2019. Wind Tre continued to lead the market of human SIMs at the end of June with a 31.5 percent share, down 3.1 percent year on year, above all as a result of the 4.7 percent market share attained by new entrant Iliad in its first 13 months of activity.

(Telecompaper) O2 UK has switched on its 5G mobile network in Belfast, Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Leeds and Slough. The network will be extended to reach a total of 20 towns and cities by end-2019 and to 50 by summer 2020. O2 is launching 5G on its Custom Plans, with unlimited data at the same price as its 4G equivalents. The 5G network infrastructure is being rolled out with Ericsson and Nokia. 

(Telecompaper) Tele2 Group said net profit from total operations almost doubled in the third quarter, driven by the Com Hem merger in Sweden, with underlying EBITDA up by 5 percent on an organic basis excluding IFRS 16. Revenue and end-user service revenue were flat year on year. It has lowered its capital expenditure guidance range for the year and is on track to fulfil its other FY guidance.

(Telecompaper) Telia has decided to cancel its share buyback programme, in order to save cash for investments and a possible economic downturn. While the group's third-quarter results showed a small improvement compared to the first half, acting CEO and former CFO Christian Luiga said service revenue was improving slower than expected and the outlook for operating cash flow in 2020 was less certain.

(Telecompaper) Netflix said revenues for the third quarter lifted 31 percent year-on-year to USD 5.24 billion. The company added 517,000 paying customers in the US and 6.255 million international clients in the quarter. The US additions came in below management expectations of 800,000. The board attributed this to a slightly higher than normal churn after the price increase of last year. The second figure was slightly better than the expected 6.20 million.

(Telecompaper) Ericsson has lifted its sales target for 2020 on a faster-than-expected expansion of the 5G market and said it also targets a higher margin from 2022 thanks to investments in growth. The new forecasts came alongside third-quarter results showing a small slowdown in organic growth and losses due to its legal troubles with US authorities.
