Thursday 16 July 2015 | 12:30 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa said revenue in the second quarter of 2015 edged up to EUR 390 million from EUR 384 million a year earlier, with EBITDA rising to EUR 131 million from EUR 127 million and EBIT to EUR 79 million from EUR 73 million. Elisa said the challenging general economic situation has remained unchanged but growth in earnings was boosted by the increasing demand for mobile data. The demand for 4G subscriptions grew strongly, and customers are ready to pay more for the use of faster data speed.
