The mobile market exhibited its first signs of growth in the quarter ending September 2014, following consecutive periods of decline dating back to 2012. Although this was largely due to Vodafone absorbing the MVNO customers of Ono, the market would have expanded even when excluding this transaction.

  • FTTH subscriptions increased by 112.6% in Q214, reaching 950,000 subscribers.
