Good news for Telkom Mobile data

Telkom released its audited results for the year ended 31 March 2014, which showed that its mobile revenue increased 72.7% to R2,347 million. Mobile data revenue increased 80.2% to R656 million.

Telkom further said that its active mobile subscribers increased 17.6% to 1,803,675 with a blended ARPU of R62.79.

Good news for Telkom Mobile data subscribers is that the company continued to grow its network.

Telkom Mobile now has 2,428 integrated sites – an annual increase of 22.3%. The company also grew its LTE sites to 1,183.

Some bad news as well

It was, however, not all good news. While revenue from Telkom’s mobile operations grew 72.7%, mobile voice and subscriber revenue decreased 20.4%.

“This can be attributed to the expiry of bulk hybrid contracts and a clean-up of our debtors´ book which has resulted in an improved quality of our customer base,” said Telkom.

“The decrease in post-paid voice revenue was partially offset by higher pre-paid voice and subscriptions revenue, supported by an increase in subscribers and ARPU.”
