We have Europe’s largest NGN footprint – providing us with a significant platform for growth
the demand for ngn broadband (i.e. via fibre or cable) in europe is growing rapidly. over the next five years, the number of households with ngn services is expected to increase by more than 40 million as consumers migrate from legacy dsl to gigabit-capable technologies. this equates to over 120 million ngn households by 2024.
hg0088管理having created europe’s largest ngn footprint, this shift towards ngn represents a significant window of opportunity for vodafone to capture substantial and profitable market share gains. we are capitalising on this opportunity, adding 719,000 broadband customers, including 1.5 million ngn customers, this year taking our total european broadband customer base to 18.8 million (including vodafoneziggo).
hg0088管理with the potential to offer superior gigabit speeds via docsis 3.1 on cable and via ftth to most of these homes in the next few years, we see significant scope to increase our on-net broadband customer penetration, which is currently 28%.
