5 leading quad-play markets in Western Europe

The practice of offering the quad-play -- combining fixed broadband, TV, voice and mobile services -- has been around for years, and in Western Europe, it's been common among the large incumbent players that have the benefits of a significant market presence combined with fixed and mobile operations. However, lately there's been a resurgence of so-called fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) as mobile and fixed operators seek to add more services to bring in new revenue streams and reduce churn.

Based on data provided by Pyramid Research, FierceWireless:Europe takes a closer look at how FMC is playing out in France, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and the Netherlands. While the markets are ranked in terms of the percentage of households with quad-play bundles, a deeper dive into the data reveals other strengths and drivers that could impact a market's ranking if looked at in different ways.
