The triple play model in Europe has expanded during the last two years as an increasing number of incumbents and second-tier operators have developed bundled services to attract customers and reduce churn. Network capacity to carry these services has been improved through upgrades using ADSL2+, hybrid VDSL/fibre and DOCSIS 3.0 technologies. A growing number of quad-play offers have also been marketed, with mobile telecoms added to existing bundles of fixed-voice, Internet and TV. This report presents key statistics and analysis on media convergence in Europe in 2010. It also assesses Europe’s digital TV market, providing data on the regulatory environment, the main operators, and forecasts for digital TV penetration in coming years.
