Brazilian unit Oi’s pay TV base meanwhile grew by 9.5% year-on-year to 829,000, representing slower growth as the company moved to focus on “quality sales” and prepares for the re-launch of the service this year, with the implementation of a new platform based on the SES 6 satellite.
Portugal Telecom plans to complete its merger with Oi in the second quarter.
Overall, Portugal Telecom saw revenues fall by 5.4% over the year to €2.91 billion and EBITDA fall by 9.9% to €1.16 billion.
