TDC NET contributes to the digitalization of Denmark and aims to deliver the best mobile network and fixed connections.

TDC NET wants to be the preferred partner for delivering highly qualified technical support to all customers. It is the aspiration to modernize and prepare TDC NET to strengthen as a carrier-grade operator by minimizing the risk of outages and thereby increasing customer satisfaction and improving the customer experience.


TDC NET became a reality, when TDC was taken over by a Consortium (ATP, PFA, PKA and Macquarie) in May 2018 with the ambition to split the integrated telco into two independent companies, i.e. an infrastructure focused company, TDC NET and an end-user content focused company, Nuuday. The long term focus of the owners is TDC NET, where the majority of the combined value creation will happen by focusing on high investment into long-term stable infrastructure assets.


TDC NET is operating as an independent company with its own purpose, strategy, leadership team, and plans for the years to come. TDC NET employs approximately 2.500 employees, and revenues amounting to 7 billion DKK revenue, 55+% EBITDA margin and investments exceeding 30+ billion DKK in the coming 10 years. Building up this new company offers a unique opportunity to be part of one of the most interesting journeys and transformations in the telco industry. Read more on TDCGroup.com
