Wednesday 8 May 2013 | 12:43 CET | News

Telefonica managed 14 million accesses in Colombia at end-March 2013, down 2 percent compared to the same period last year. Mobile accesses stood at 11.5 million, down 3 percent year-on-year due to the decline in prepay customers, after posting a net loss of 187,000 customers in the quarter.

The contract segment grew by 7 percent year-on-year, and now accounts for 27 percent of the mobile customer base after a net addition of 41,000 accesses in the first quarter. Mobile broadband accesses grew 14 percent, already accounting for 13 percent of total mobile accesses, mainly as a result of the strong growth of smartphones (+23% year-on-year). ARPU decreased by 2.3 percent year-on-year, impacted by termination rate cuts.

Telefonica Colombia’s fixed accesses stood at 1.4 million at end-March, down 2.4 percent year-on-year, with net additions of 7,000 accesses in the first quarter. Pay-TV accesses totaled 29,000, up 17 percent year-on-year, with net additions of 14,000 accesses in the quarter.

Telefonica Colombia’s revenues in the quarter totaled EUR 426 million, down 2.7 percent year-on-year, affected by the reduction in termination rates. Mobile revenues stood at EUR 259 million, down 1.8 percent year-on-year. Data revenues posted year-on-year growth of 1.4 percent in the first quarter, while broadband and new service revenues remained stable compared with the first quarter of 2012, and voice and access revenues posted a year-on-year decrease of 8.1 percent due to a lower number of accesses and the reduction in termination rates.

OIBDA stood at EUR 143 million in the quarter, up 4.8 percent year-on-year, with an OIBDA margin of 33.6 percent. Capex fell by 14.9 percent year-on-year to EUR 32 million.
