At the end of second quarter 2017 (2Q2017), around 89 out of every 100 households in Portugal had a bundle of services. The number of subscribers to these offers exceeded 3.6 million - an increase of 64 thousand subscribers (1.8%) versus the previous quarter and 261 thousand subscribers (7.8%) versus the same quarter of 2016.
The reported growth stems from growth in double-play bundles with subscription television (STV) and mobile broadband (MBB), which reported subscribers for the first time (42 thousand), and to a lesser extent, from growth in quintuple-play bundles, adding 25 thousand subscribers (+1.7%).
The most popular bundles continued to be quintuple-play (fixed broadband + fixed telephone + STV + mobile telephone), with 1.491 million subscribers (41.3%), followed by triple-play (fixed telephone + fixed broadband +STV), with 1.475 million subscribers (40.8%).
In the period reported, revenues from bundles of services totalled 885.9 million euros (6.6% more than in the same period of the previous year). Average monthly revenue per subscriber was 41.4 euros (1.3% less than in 2Q2016).
