TE Data loses customers for “first time ever” in 1Q2017

Quality and service issues drive household subscribers away from TE Data, into the arms of mobile data providers: TE Data has lost about 3,000 subscribers in 1Q2017 “for the first time ever,” Al Borsa reports. The near-monopoly still retains a market share of 75.3% as of the end of March, down from 76% at the end of last year. The Telecom Egypt subsidiary lost 5,000 household subscribers, but gained 2,000 new corporate clients. The gains were made by DSL services provided by MNOs Orange Egypt (formerly Linkdotnet), Vodafone, and Etisalat Misr. In total, the market for ADSL services grew by 0.9% q-o-q in 1Q2017.
