Swiss operator Sunrise said that its service revenues grew by 3.1 percent in Q2 as a result of an increase in the number of subscriptions for mobile postpaid, TV and internet, and B2B revenue growth. However, total revenues fell by 1.7 percent year-on-year to CHF 455 million, due to reduced hubbing and mobile hardware sales, both carrying low profitability.
