Kabel Deutschland – In fiscal year 2013/14, Kabel Deutschland achieved a step-up in the net adds run-rate of its Internet & Phone products.

Kabel Deutschland has further improved its subscriber mix: the top-tier 100 Mbit/s offering is the Company’s bestselling product with approx. 50% of new customers taking this high-end product. The total blended Internet & Phone ARPU decreased slightly to €27.50 (previous year: €28.27), attributable to the continued pressure on the variable ARPU component, which declined by €1.12 year on year to €3.31 per month, driven by a decline in call minutes and regulatory changes in termination rates. In contrast, the fixed ARPU component continues to increase steadily due to the improved subscriber mix and reached €24.20 per month in fiscal year 2013/14 (previous year: €23.85).
