A solid performance by TeliaSonera in 2010 was reflected in its Broadband Services business area, where TV subscriptions at year’s end stood at 935,000 or 17% more than 12 months earlier.
The number of broadband subscriptions meanwhile stood at 2,402,000 (+2%), while fixed voice and VoIP services were received by 5,040,000 (-7%) customers.
The company notes that in Sweden 40% of broadband customers also have TV services from TeliaSonera and that in 2010 over 2 million VOD rentals were sold, compared to 1.2 million in 2009.
Although TeliaSonera’s full year net sales – in local currencies and excluding acquisitions – increased by 3.5% in 2010, they fell by 2.4% to SEK106,582 million (€12,051 million) in reported currency.
Net income attributable to owners of the parent company increased by 12.7% to SEK21,257 million and earnings per share to SEK4.73.
