EU telcos: pressure to invest grows, revenues stabilise

ETNO and leading consultant IDATE presented today their Annual Economic Report, which outlines the performance of the European telecoms sector in 2016. As the EU discusses how to boost investment in its digital networks, the report finds that ETNO members have contributed with 70% of the total sector investment in fixed networks in 2015.

Overall, Capital Expenditure grew 4% across the EU28 countries, while telecom service revenues growth is now close to zero. The EU-US investment gap is still wide, with Americans deploying €63bn in 2015 versus €47bn in the EU.
