European operators step up to the quad-play plate

While the idea of Western European service providers offering bundles of wireline broadband, TV, voice and wireless is not new, the new trend is for service providers to develop fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) offerings.

In its new report Ranking of 5 leading quad-play markets in Western Europe, FierceWirelessEurope ranks the five leading quad-play markets in Western Europe based on data provided by Pyramid Research for the five markets as of the end of 2014. One of the interesting trends that Pyramid points out is that while quad-play and FMC take-up tends to be more prevalent in Western Europe than in other regions, Poland is one country in Central and Eastern Europe with good FMC adoption.
