Lyse enjoys solid growth over five years

Computerworld.no  30.03.2015

 

Lyse Group has posted its 2014 results and compared them with those of its main fixed-line telephony competitors – Telenor, Altibox and Get.

Konsernsjef Eimund Nygard i Lyse har bygd tele som en snart dominerende inntektsfaktor i konsernet. Han turte satse daTelenornolte og forsetter med rekordinvesteringer. I tillegg kommer satsingen i Lyse Smart. Lyses televirksomhet er doblet de siste fem arene siden 2010. Driftsresultatet er gatt fra et lite minus i 2010 til over 400 millioner i pluss i 2014. 2015 kan bli et nytt rekordar. Slar Get og Telenor Kundeveksten har i snitt de siste fem arene vaert pa 37 600. I fjor greide Altibox a kapre 20 000 flere nye hoyhastighetskunder enn bade Telenor og Get. Malt i fibervekst har Lyse alene halvparten. Det var meget sterke tall Lyse-konsernet la fram sist fredag. Til tross for rekordhoye investeringer pa 874 millioner kroner og oppstart i Bergen, er bunnlinja na bunnsolid. Det som begynte som en beskjeden og lite ambisios satsing i 2002 er 13 ar senere blitt en pillar i Lyse-konsernet med 42 prosent av totalomsetningen. Mer vekst i 2015 Det er ingenting i veien med veksttakten i 2015 heller. Selv sier Toril Nag at de satser pa omlag samme kundevekst som i ar, men det meste tyder pa at de kan na hoyere. Den storste vekstmotorene er Viken Fiber og de ligger godt an til a greie samme kundevekst i 2015 som i 2014 — 15 000. Og i 2015 kommer Bergen Fiber inn i tallene for forste gang med solide veksttall. Det er pa det rene at Altibox vil runde 400 000 kunder i 2015. De gikk ut av fjoraret med 364 000. Altibox har gjort det meget bra ogsa pa nybyggermarkedet. Det gir i mange omrader ogsa relativt rimelige investeringer per nye kunde. Snittinvesteringene til Lyse var i fjor vel 19 000 kroner per nye kunde. Og da var grunninvesteringen i Bergen noe som ikke ga utslag pa kundestatistikken. Star seg mot konkurrentene Pa det grunnlaget er det ingen dristig spadom a hevde at Lyse gar mot et nytt toppar bade i resultat og kundevekst i 2015. Telecom Revy anslar at det ved arsskiftet var omlag 550 000 fiberkunder og 630 000 HFC kabelkunder i Norge. Det betyr at vel 50 prosent av alle husstander na abonnerer pa hoyhastighetsnett mens ytterligere ca. 20 prosent har tilgang til det ifolge tilgangsundersokelsene til Nexia. En vesentlig del her er fibernettet til Altibox-partnerne. En annen viktig faktor er stor interesse for Smartly. Disse Smarthus-produktene som konsernet har satset pa, vil ogsa vaere en drivkraft for ny vekst og en klar konkurransefordel i markedet da verken Telenor eller Get er i naerheten av a ha et sa omfattende system. Klar vekstvinner Lyse-Altibox 45 500 Get 25 000 Telenor 24 500 Andre 16 000 (vart forelopige anslag) Totalvekst hoyhastighet 110 000 Anslatt fiber 90 000 Her har vi ikke tatt med VDSL, fordi det ikke tilfredsstiller regjeringens mal om 100 Mbps nedstroms. Endelige tall far vi nar Nkom i mai legger fram tall for samtlige operatorer. Sluttkundeomsetningen i Altibox-felleskapet var pa over 3 milliarder kroner. Gets omsetning nadde i fjor 2,6 milliarder kroner. Get beholder sin eksepsjonelle gode lonnsomhet. EBITDA ble i fjor pa 1,2 milliarder — 138 millioner bedre enn aret for. EBITDA-marginen havnet pa 47,3 prosent hvilket faktisk er i overkant av hva Telenor makter. EBITDA-marginen til Lyse tele var i fjor pa 33 prosent. Altibox-felleskapet ligger na pa en andreplass pa bredband i Norge bade malt i antall kunder med Internett-aksess og omsetning. Get hadde ved arsskiftet 318 000 kunder og Altibox 364 000 minus ca. 17 000 i Danmark. Det er med andre ord bare pa EBITDA-margin Get na slar Lyse. Lyse tjente 740 kroner per maned om vi deler salgsinntekten pa gjennomsnitt av kundetall for aret — ca. 344 000. Da er riktignok et IT-selskap og alarmselskap med i tallene. Forskjellen i margin skyldes blant annet at Get har en god del rimelige lavhastighetsabonnement i sin kabel-kundebase mens Altibox na kun har abonnement pa 35 Mbps og over.

Brainworks withdraws USD 20 mln Telecel Zimbabwe offer

Telecompaper.com  30.03.2015

 

Brainworks Capital Management has withdrawn its offer to Empowerment Corporation to purchase its 40% shareholding in Telecel Zimbabwe for USD20 mln.

Private equity firm Brainworks Capital Management has withdrawn its offer to Empowerment Corporation (EC) to purchase its 40 percent shareholding in Telecel Zimbabwe for USD 20 million, The Herald reported. This follows failure to get a concrete agreement for EC shareholders. Telecel International owns the other 60 percent of Telecel Zimbabwe. EC comprises various indigenous groups. The transaction was affected by an urgent court application with respect to the sale of the Telecel shares, a dispute over the valuation of the company and the authority of certain shareholders representatives, chiefly businesspeople James Makamba and Jane Mutasa. The EC shareholder disputes originate from the various reorganisations the company went through during the formative years dating back to 1998. The withdrawal also comes at a time the mobile telecoms company is facing imminent closure over its failure to pay for an operating licence as stated under the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe Act. The government has threatened to shut down Telecel for failing to pay for the renewal.

Broadband development in Risor

Risor.kommune.no  30.03.2015

 

The authorities of Risor, Norway, are working to boost the broadband development across the municipality. To this end, they have entered into an agreement with Telenor, under which the latter will provide its broadband coverage to 75% of households in Akland, Moen, Bosvik, Lindland, Roysland and Torskeberg. Telenor has already installed several new base stations in Risor, and upgraded its network to 3G and 4G in numerous locations.

Risor kommune arbeider for en raskest mulig bredbandsutbygging i hele kommunen. Gjennom samarbeidet Det Digitale Agder (DAA) far Risors innbyggere na over 900 000 kroner i offentlig stotte til fiberutbygging. Kommunen vil ogsa soke om midler til nye prosjekter. Den offentlige stotten gir mulighet til bredbandsutbygging utenfor de mest tettbygde strok i kommunen og reduserer den enkelte abonnents tilkoblingsavgift. Den avtalen Risor kommune na ved hjelp av DDA har forhandlet fram med Telenor gjelder omradet Akland, Moen, Bosvik, Lindland, Roysland og Torskeberg. Disse omradene er valgt ut etter henvendelser fra beboere og velforeninger i omradet og ut fra praktisk mulighet til utbygging. Beboerne far anledning til a koble seg til nettet for en langt lavere pris enn det som ellers ville vaert mulig for leverandoren a tilby. For noen av grendene er det forutsatt at det graves grofter. Dette kan gjores pa dugnad eller ved at Telenor tar jobben for en fast meterpris. Viktig a benytte anledningen na Avtalen forutsetter at 75 prosent av de omkring 350 helarsbebodde husene pa Akland, Moen, Bosvik, Lindland, Roysland og Torskeberg na benytter seg av tilbudet. Hvis tallet blir mye lavere kan prisene per abonnement ga opp, eller Telenor kan velge a droppe hele eller deler av utbyggingen. Det er derfor viktig at velforeninger og grendelag pa de aktuelle stedene na mobiliserer for a fa flest mulig til a benytte seg av muligheten. Tilbudet er i forste rekke beregnet pa fastboende og naeringsliv, men fritidsboliger innenfor det aktuelle omradet kan ogsa knytte seg til. Telenor og DDA har i tilbudet utelatt noen av de aller mest avsidesliggende plassene innenfor de aktuelle kretsene. Kommunen og Telenor vil etter paske ha moter med beboerne i kretsene og gjore det klart hvem som omfattes av tilbudet og hva som blir betingelsene. Noen kretser har sma krav til graving som dugnadsinnsats, andre har relativt mye. Mer om stotteordningen Den offentlige stotten til utbygging av fiberkabler for internett er et tiltak for a fa god internettdekning ogsa i omrader som er av liten kommersiell interesse for tilbydere av internettjenester. Det vil normalt si spredtbygde omrader eller sma grender. Nkom (Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, tidligere Post- og teletilsynet) tildelte i 2014 midler til utbygging i 10 kommuner pa Agder, deriblant Vegarshei og Froland. Risor kommune fikk avslag pa sin soknad. Men Det Digitale Agder (DDA) valgte a stotte flere kommuner slik at prosjektene kunne realiseres likevel, deriblant Risor og Gjerstad. DDA eies av kommunene pa Agder pluss de to fylkeskommunene. Les mer om nasjonal stotte til bredbandsutbygging pa Nkoms hjemmeside . Videre muligheter for bredbandsutbygging Utbygging av internett i Norge er overlatt til private aktorer og det kan virke svaert uoversiktlig for den enkelte innbygger og en kommune som onsker a bidra til en helhetlig plan for utbyggingen. Det er ingen tvil om at internett er en viktig del av infrastrukturen pa linje med vei, strom, vann og avlop og at internett for hvert ar blir stadig viktigere for alle, bade i naeringslivet og for private. De fleste skoleelever trenger tilgang til nettet for a gjore lekser og svaert mange offentlige og private tjenester, som nettbank og selvangivelse, er avhengig av stabil nettforbindelse. I tillegg kommer fjernsyn og digital underholdning der det meste av innholdet na distribueres via fiberkabler. Mobilnettet blir stadig bedre og mer brukt til tilgang til internett, men hastighet, kapasitet og pris gir begrensninger for mange. Nkom har na i var apnet for en ny soknadsrunde. Flere innbyggere har allerede meldt sin interesse for at deres omrade skal prioriteres i ny soknad. Det som er viktig i denne sammenheng, er a begrunne hvorfor omradet bor prioriteres, med utgangspunkt i antall husstander og innbyggernes/det lokale naeringslivets muligheter til a bidra med egne ressurser (som graving og mobilisering av abonnenter) for a realisere prosjektet. Utbygging av mobilt bredband fortsetter I omrader med svaert spredt bosetting er det vanskelig a fa pa plass tilbud om bredband, selv med offentlige tilskudd. Det arbeides kontinuerlig med utbygging av mobildekningen, ogsa det i samarbeid med DDA. Dette prosjektet har som malsetting at innen 1. juli 2015 skal 99 prosent av alle pa Agder ha god mobildekning og innen 1. oktober 2016 skal 98 prosent av alle fastboende ha mobilt bredband. I dette programmet har Telenor allerede bygget ut flere nye basestasjoner for mobilnettet i Risor og nettet har blitt oppgradert til 3G og 4G en rekke steder.

Econet, Zimbabwe government clash over mobile phone infrastructure

Reuters  30.03.2015

 

Zimbabwe’s Econet Wireless said that the government’s requirement for mobile phone operators, including Telecel Zimbabwe, to share telecommunications infrastructure was a disguised move to seize the assets.

Zimbabwe’s Econet Wireless said on Monday the government’s requirement to have mobile phone operators share telecommunications infrastructure was a disguised move by authorities to seize the assets. Econet, which owns 80 percent of telecoms infrastructure, said in a statement that although it agrees to share infrastructure such as base stations — metal towers with antennas and other electronics — the firm was unlikely to benefit much from sharing with its rivals’ smaller networks. «Therefore, the type of infrastructure sharing under debate is not feasible. It is a disguised, unconstitutional form of compulsory acquisition of our infrastructure,» Econet said. Supa Mandiwanzira, Minister for ICT, Postal and Courier Services, rejected Econet’s accusation and said in a statement the government is considering creating a single firm to house the southern African country’s mobile phone infrastructure. He blamed the mobile operators for erecting mobile phone transmission towers at similar sites instead of sharing the infrastructure to reduce tariffs. «The key objective for infrastructure sharing is to make services cheaper for consumers and save the country unnecessary cost of infrastructure importation,» Mandiwanzira said. Zimbabwe’s telecoms regulator in January forced mobile phone operators to slash voice calls to 15 cents from 25 cents. The regulator wants rates to fall further to 9 cents next year. Other mobile phone operators in Zimbabwe are Telecel, which is majority owned by Amsterdam-based mobile operator Vimpelcom, and government-owned NetOne.

The Ukrainian government has authorized the telecom regulator NCCIR to inspect a number of telecom companies, including MTS Ukraine, Kyivstar and their subsidiaries, in order to prevent unauthorized access to their systems, as well as ensure consumer protection and effective use of radio frequency resources.

Кабинет министров предоставил Национальной комиссии, осуществляющей госрегулирование в сфере связи и информатизации (НКРСИ) право осуществить проверку ряда субъектов хозяйствования на рынке телекоммуникаций, в том числе крупнейших игроков рынка мобильной связи ПрАО «МТС Украина» (с филиалами) и «Киевстар» (с филиалами). Об этом сообщает Капитал со ссылкой на Дело. Как отмечается в распоряжении правительства № 259-р от 25 марта, проверки разрешены с целью предотвращения несанкционированному проникновению в системы телекоммуникационных сетей и средств телекоммуникаций, защиты прав потребителей телекоммуникационных услуг, обеспечения эффективного пользования радиочастотным ресурсом Украины. Кроме вышеуказанных компаний, разрешение на проверки получено для компаний «Первый инвестиционный союз» и ООО «Телесистемы Украины». Комиссия должна осуществить проверки до 30 апреля.
