The Dutch mobile phone market grew 5% last year to €6.3bn, due largely to text message and internet services, according to independent research group Telecompaper, quoted by ANP.
The organisation is forecasting a rise of between 3% and 5% this year, again driven by mobile internet services.
KPN has just over 48% of the market, followed by the T-Mobile and Orange combine with 25.3% and Vodafone on 20.9%, Telecompaper said.
There were some 19.3 million mobile phone connections in the Netherlands at the end of last year and this is forecast to rise to 21 million.
