The number of active MoMo customers increased to 5.3 million. MoMo subscribers made up more than half the total subscriber base of 10.5 million, which declined by 1.8 percent, hit by the regulator's ban on the sale and replacement of SIM cards between March and May 2018. The number of active data subscribers rose to 1.8 million, helping lift data revenue by 17.8 percent.
