by admin

The mobile network operator and landline provider o2 Telefónica has presented current figures for the 2023 financial year and the fourth quarter from October to December of last year. According to the company, o2 can look back on a record financial year and further growth is also expected for 2024. o2 gained new customers in both broadband and mobile communications.

13,000 new broadband connections in the fourth quarter – fewer VDSL connections

The number of internet and data connections in the o2 landline network increased by 12,000 to 2.460 million connections between the beginning of October and the end of December 2023. Of these, 2.384 million were broadband connections, an increase of 13,000 connections. Overall, the number of o2 broadband connections grew by 90,000 in 2023. The number of VDSL connections, however, fell by 2,000 to 1.856 million in the fourth quarter. In the previous three quarters, VDSL had been able to increase.

Accordingly, the growth in broadband in the fourth quarter is likely to be due primarily to internet via cable and fiber optics. o2 markets both DSL and cable Internet and fast Internet via fiber optic connection. There is also an offer for internet at home via 4G/5G.

Sales in the fixed network increased by 2.7 percent to 827 million euros in 2023. o2 cites strong customer demand for fast broadband connections as the reason.
