In 3Q17, AIS recorded 4% YoY growth in total revenue, underpinned by both mobile data and fixed-broadband businesses.

On mobile business, the demand for video streaming on smartphone continued to grow, resulting in the data usage of 5.9GB/month. In addition, we have recently launched the "Next G" network for the first time in Thailand and South East Asia. The technology combines 4G network and Super WiFi to provide a high speed data up to 1Gbps, which allows the best network experience on streaming. In 3Q17, 4G penetration rose to 42% of the total 40.2mn mobile subscribers. For fixed broadband business, AIS Fibre subscribers expanded to 481,500. During the quarter, we introduced a full bundled package "AIS Fibre Power 4", combining all three core services (mobile, fixed broadband, and digital services), which allows customers to enjoy a wide range of premium contents both on the go via AIS Play and at home via AIS Playbox. This will not only enhance customer experience but also create differentiation. We reiterated our aim to become one of the major players in the fixed broadband market within the next three years.

Overall, in 3Q17, EBITDA increased 15% YoY to Bt17,589mn supported by decent revenue growth and cost efficiency, particularly the handset campaigns targeting on postpaid segment. As a result, net profit increased 14% YoY to Bt7,469mn.
