Broadband internet helped Swedish cable operator Com Hem achieve a year of steady growth in 2015, despite a decline in fixed telephony. Total revenue generating units (RGUs) for Swedish cable operator increased 3.2% year-on-year, reaching 1,615,928 at the end of 2015, with the bulk of this driven by the addition of 46,656 internet RGUs over the year. Com Hem also turned in stable growth in its digital TV subscriber base, which increased 2.9% over the year to 635,319 RGUs. This continues to be assisted by the operator’s investment in TiVo, which at the end of 2015 represented 35% of Com Hem’s digital base.
