In Poland its TV numbers climbed 12.5% year-on-year to 875,000 customers.
In Orange’s home and largest TV market, France, it grew its subscriber count from 6.69 million in Q1 2017 to 6.87 million in Q1 2018.
Overall the company announced 2.0% revenue growth to €10.08 billion. Adjusted EBITDA was up 3.8% to €2.61 billion.
“In this pivotal time for the group, these strong results continue to demonstrate the relevance of our strategy and in particular, our efforts to differentiate ourselves through excellent networks and customer relations,” said Orange Group chairman and CEO, Stéphane Richard.
“Over 90% of the population across our European countries now have access to 4G, this includes 97% coverage in France. Having maintained a steady rhythm of deployment, we remain the European leader in fibre, bringing connectivity to 27.7 million households.
“This unmatched connectivity will be the basis for our transformation from a pureplay telecommunications operator to a multiservice digital operator.”
