The company had 12.881 million revenue-generating units at the end of June, up from 12.744 million at the end of the first quarter. Pay TV customers numbered 4.632 million, including 973,000 multiroom customers.

Broadband customers numbered 1.689 million, while mobile subscribers numbered 1.667 million.

Costs increased due to higher depreciation costs, including those related to the acquisition of Midas Group.
