31 Oct 2012

Atlantic Canadian telco Bell Aliant has reported a 21% year-on-year rise in net income to CAD92 million (USD91.9 million) for the third quarter of 2012, on revenues which fell by 0.4% to CAD697 million, as growth in IPTV, broadband internet, data and wireless turnover largely offset declines in local and long-distance telephony revenue. ‘FibreOP’ fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband customers grew by 16,500 to 92,000 in the three months ended 30 September 2012, including migrations from DSL/fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), while total quarterly net broadband additions were 7,500, bringing the total high speed user base to 913,600, up 2.4% from a year earlier. IPTV customers increased by a net 12,300 in three months to 107,400 at the end of September 2012, as FibreOP (FTTH) IPTV customers grew by 14,200 to reach 79,500, a portion of which were migrations from Aliant’s FTTN TV service.
