COPENHAGEN, Denmark — TDC (Copenhagen:TDC) has today published financial statements for the first quarter of 2009.

Consumer

Within landline, PSTN telephony remains the largest business area, but the customer base is decreasing as some customers are switching mainly to mobile only but also to VoIP. To counter this trend, Consumer has intensified its commercial activity, and in January 2009 introduced the broadband-based multi-play products, TDC HomeTrio and TDC HomeDuo. TDC HomeTrio consists of digital IP TV offering 28 TV channels, VoIP and internet access at speeds of up to 10 Mbps. TDC HomeDuo consists of internet access at speeds of up to 10 Mbps, and VoIP. There has been significant interest in these offerings, which will, however, not materialize in revenue until the coming quarters.

YouSee

YouSee is the largest TV distributor in Denmark and provides TV signals for approximately 45% of all Danish households. YouSee offers cable TV, broadband services and telephony.
