Orange Group revenues totaled €10.6 billion in the third quarter 2020, up 0.8% year on year on a comparable basis.
This growth was driven by the momentum in services, in particular wholesale services thanks to the co-financing of the fiber network in France and convergent services which rose 5.7% and 1.5% respectively.
Roaming continued to be adversely impacted by travel restrictions, while the decline in equipment sales was contained at 1.9%.
France and Africa & Middle East contributed positively with respective growth of 3.1% and 5.1% (compared to growth of 2.7% and 1.3% in the second quarter) while Europe (including Spain) and Enterprise continued to be under pressure, albeit with an improving trend.
Over the first nine months of the year, revenue growth was 0.5%.
There were 10.9 million convergent customers across the Group at 30 September 2020, up 2.1% year on year, supported by continued strong growth in Europe.
Mobile services had 211.9 million customers at 30 September 2020, up 2.5% year on year, including 76.2 million contract customers, an increase of 4.0%.
Fixed services had 45.1 million customers on 30 September 2020, down 1.4% year on year, primarily due to the 12.8% decline in fixed narrowband accesses and despite the continued very strong growth (up 21.9%) in high-speed broadband accesses.
