Etisalat Misr subscriber base falls 4% in 2019

Thursday 20 February 2020 | 14:45 CET | News
Egyptian operator Etisalat Misr's subscriber base decreased by 4 percent in 2019 to 26.4 million. The company blamed the fall on regulatory restrictions on subscriber acquisitions through indirect channels and higher government fees applied on new Sims. Revenue amounted to AED 0.9 billion in the fourth quarter, its parent company reported, equal to an increase of 29 percent year on year and 3 percent quarter over quarter. Revenue growth was attributed to growth in mobile data and increased penetration in the postpaid segment.
