Cegetel revenues up thanks to Vodafone Live!

6 May 2004

The SFR Cegetel Group has reported a 16% rise in consolidated revenues to EUR2.058 billion for the first quarter of 2004, on the back of strong mobile subscriber growth and an increase in ARPU. Mobile revenues grew 12% to EUR1.755 billion, boosted by the signing up of 254,000 net new customers to its Vodafone Live! multimedia service. Annual rolling ARPU was up 3% to EUR435, due to an improved customer mix of 58.5% pre-paid customers. Wireline and internet revenues rose 39% to EUR303 million at the end of March, with voice lines expanding 10% to total 3.8 million.
