Orange France adds 320,000 mobile subscribers in Q3

Thursday 25 October 2012 | 08:48 CET | News

Orange France added 320,000 subscribers, excluding MVNOs, in the third quarter, after adding 86,000 in the second quarter and losing 387,000 in the first. The operator reported revenues down 5.4 percent on a comparable basis to EUR 5.28 billion in the third quarter, reflecting tariff adjustments for mobile services and a continued fall in fixed services.

Mobile revenues dropped 2.3 percent on a comparable basis to EUR 2.63 billion, as price cuts at Sosh and on  the Open and Origami packages were largely offset by its national roaming deal with Free Mobile, higher handset sales and the launch of the iPhone 5. ARPU was 7.8 percent lower at the end of September than a year earlier, in line with a 10 percent reduction expected at the end of the year. The Sosh low-cost youth service had 540,000 customers at the end of September. The Open quad-play offer had 2.54 million. Contract customers rose by 1.1 percent to 19.47 million, while prepaid fell by 2.3 percent to 7.17 million.

Fixed service revenues declined by 4.1 percent on a comparable basis to EUR 3.07 billion. Traditional phone services down 15 percent were partially offset by broadband and carrier services. Fixed broadband revenues rose 4 percent as the division added 350,000 customers in a year to reach a total of 9.83 million, including 144,000 fibre optic customers, up by 21,000 in the third quarter. Digital TV customers rose 18.4 percent in a year to 4.88 million. Fixed broadband ARPU inched up 0.3 percent. National carrier service revenues rose 0.5 percent to EUR 1.11 million.
