The full number of net additions went to 1.579 million, taking the total to 75.619 million at the end of June. The figure includes 686,000 branded postpaid phone customers, and 331,000 postpaid other devices such as wearables. The number of branded prepaid net additions was flat year-on-year at 91,000 due to sharp competition. Postpaid phone churn meanwhile went to a low of 0.95 percent from 1.07 percent the year earlier, while prepaid churn slipped to 3.81 percent from 3.94.
