"Operators can take advantage of growing high-speed broadband demand by rolling out NGA broadband infrastructure that justifies a price increase."

Telecoms revenue in Western Europe will continue to decline in 2016–2021, but at a substantially lower rate than in the previous 5 years. Competition from over-the-top (OTT) players will erode voice revenue, but network upgrades and growing take-up of smartphones, 4G and NGA fixed broadband will drive revenue growth in data segments in both fixed and mobile markets.

This report and associated data annex provide:


  • a 5-year forecast of more than 345 mobile and fixed KPIs for Western Europe, as a whole and for 16 key countries

  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries

  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison

  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.

30. Individual country forecasts
31. France: Total service revenue will continue to decline slightly, due to  continuing high revenue losses on voice services
32. France  – mobile: Increasing 4G coverage and high smartphone penetration  will drive mobile handset data ARPU
33. France  – fixed: Operators will focus on growing NGA penetration and bundle  take - up to protect broadband ARPU from decline
34. Germany: A decline in fixed voice will be the main driver behind decreasing  overall service revenue
35. Germany  – mobile: Revenue will return to growth late in the forecast period,  as fixed – mobile convergence discounts dissipate
36.Germany  – fixed: VDSL will be the main driver of growth, due to Telekom’s  vectoring upgrades
37. Italy: Total service revenue will decline to EUR24.7 billion and fixed services  will represent 51% of retail revenue in 2021
38. Italy  – mobile: Handset ARPU decline will slow, driven by value - added  services and increasing data usage
39. Italy  – fixed: The shift from traditional DSL network to NGA will drive  broadband service take - up
40. Spain: Growth in fixed broadband and mobile data revenue will prevent  further significant declines in total service revenue
41. Spain  – mobile: Increasing smartphone take  - up will stabilise handset data  ARPU
42. Spain   –fixed: Fixed fibre roll - out and upselling of converged services will  boost NGA penetration and drive ASPU growth
43. UK: Despite the Brexit vote, the UK market will remain buoyant in many  areas
44. UK  – mobile: Competition remains strong, and we expect convergence to  put further pressure on mobile ARPU
45. UK  – fixed: Broadband take - up is high, so the focus is on increasing access  speed and take - up of value - added services
