Fixed internet revenues grew 6.8% to CAD103 million in 2011, with average revenue per user (ARPU) up 8.1% to CAD38.56 when compared to 2010, due to fewer customers on promotional plans, subscriber growth and price increases. Annual IPTV revenues grew 19.3% to CAD71 million, driven by the same factors. Long-distance carrier division Allstream’s converged IP revenues were up 8.7% to CAD235 million in 2011, representing approximately 30% of Allstream’s total revenues.
