The company added 8,000 fixed internet customers, taking its total to 2.079 million, while fixed voice lines fell by 36,000 in the quarter, taking that total to 2.440 million.

Mobile post-paid customers grew by 23,000 to 4.4088 million, while the number of prepaid cards issued fell by 1,000 to 742,000.

“In spite of a challenging market, we maintained a positive customer momentum, growing our Internet, TV and Mobile Postpaid customer bases, supported by our convergence and segmentation strategy. We continue to launch innovative offers to address the needs of customers, with the recent revamp of our millennials offer Epic combo, providing an even more attractive fully digital experience. With Scarlet [the group’s low-cost brand] we maintain an attractive position in the price seekers segment,” said interim CEO Sandrine Dufour.

Dufour, who took over less than a month ago after the departure of Dominique Leroy, said she was “confident” the company could reach 8ts projections for the year
