    VodafoneZiggo achieves good results in ‘pre-corona’ quarter

    6 mei 2020

    For the fourth consecutive quarter, VodafoneZiggo’s turnover has increased, this time by 3% compared to Q1 2019. This stable turnover growth was mainly the result of the growth in fixed consumer and business markets and that in the mobile consumer market, where mobile phone sales increased. The corona crisis did not impact VodafoneZiggo’s activities until the last weeks of the first 2020 quarter. For this reason, the impact on the Q1 results was limited.
