On top of average 4G speeds well in excess of 40 Mbps, all four national operators have now passed 90% in our 4G availability category – the first time have seen this in European reports, OpenSignal reports.
T-mobile is winning or drawing in six out of our seven categories. And this dominance looks set to continue with a major mobile merger likely to be approved before the end of the year.
Further significant growth will be difficult to achieve, since 4G speeds over 50 Mbps and availability over 95% are rare indeed, OpenSignal said in report (South Korea topped OpenSignal list of countries with a national 4G availability score of over 97%!)
Competition remains high in the Netherlands’ mobile sector as the market approaches saturation. This has triggered an M&A wave across Dutch telecoms, with the most significant mobile merger of T-Mobile and Tele2 still awaiting regulatory approval – although this is expected to be resolved before the end of the year.
