Free revenue growth slows to 5.3% in Q3

Thursday 16 November 2017 | 10:16 CET | News
French telecom group Iliad has reported revenues of EUR 1.25 billion for the three months to September, up 5.3 percent year-on-year. Both mobile and fixed revenues progressed at a slower pace compared with the first half of the year. Mobile revenues increased by 6.3 percent to EUR 554 million (+10.5% in H1 2017), with service revenues up by 7.5 percent. The operator said that quarterly performance was impacted by lower SMS usage and reduced revenues following the larger roaming data allowance offered to customers since June.
