Mobile revenue growth Dec 2008 quarter

20 July 2010

Overall reported year-on-year growth for the top 5 markets recovered in the quarter to December after a significant fall in the previous quarter, rising from 0.2% to 0.8%

However this movement was entirely due to the improving regulatory landscape which reduced the negative impact on growth by 0.6ppts in the quarter, particularly due to less pressure on growth from last year’s roaming cuts, which we estimate reduced reported growth by 1.3ppts this quarter vs. 1.9ppts last quarter

Stripping out these negative influences, and our estimate of underlying service revenue growth for the quarter is flat at 2.2%
