Dtac's net profit jumps nearly 70% in 2019 on lower concession costs

Thursday 30 January 2020 | 09:19 CET | News
Thai operator Total Access Communication (Dtac) saw its service revenues for the fourth quarter of 2019 grow 3.1 percent year-on-year, while core service revenues for 2019 slightly increased by 0.1 percent, driven by improved prepaid subscriber development with positive net additional prepaid subscribers in the fourth quarter and continuous growth in the postpaid segment. Net profit for 2019 amounted to THB 5.9 billion, up 69.4 percent year-on-year, boosted by lower regulatory and amortization expenses of assets under concession.
