It covers the fixed-line market and developments in the rollout of the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) network. The fixed-line voice market (voice calls and local access) continues to lose overall share of the telecom services market, partly caused by the drop in call prices and volumes as the uptake of mobile and other P2P services continues.
