Swisscom TV hits new heights

Swisscom has seen its IPTV customer base increase by 40% in the 12 months to last March to reach 655,000, adding 47,000 new subscribers in the first quarter of this year alone.

The telco reports a strong growth in its bundled offerings, adding that more and more of its customers are now switching from traditional services such as phoning and text messaging to new global IP-based applications and social media platforms as a means of communicating.

Total revenues across all operations and markets (the company also operates in Italy under the Fastweb brand) reached CHF 2.8bn (US$ 3bn) in the first quarter of this year, down 2% from one year previously, while operating income also fell 2% to reach CHF 1.1bn.
