10th Implementation Report

The EU 10th report is out, at least in truncated form (I presume it's truncated - it's certainly shorter than usual). I think from this that it's pretty clear the combined effects of ULL players, MVNOs, CPS carriers, and IP parasites are indeed having a big bite of the market. Here are the salient points:

The number of fixed line voice service providers has grown for the first time since 2001, and fixed number portability is way up across the board in member states;

EU 15 incumbents' average share of local call market revenues has dipped below 77%, from 81% last year;

Broadband lines in the EU 25 are up 72% YoY;

New entrants in the broadband market have expanded their market share by 2.2 percentage points, to 43.7%;

New entrants in the DSL market have increased market share by 8 percentage points, to 30.2%;

Unbundled local loops in the EU 15 stood at 3.8m in July 2004, up from 1.8m in July 2003;

Average market share of leading mobile players has fallen to 43.2% from 46.6% one year ago, a drop larger than in the three preceding years combined.
