VIENNA — Today, A1 Telekom Austria Group (VSE: TKA, OTC US: TKAGY) announces its results for the first quarter of 2019, ending March 31, 2019.

The number of revenue-generating units (RGUs) in the Group’s fixed-line business increased by 3.5% year-on-year. The decline in RGUs in Austria, which was driven primarily by voice and to some extent also by low bandwidth broadband RGUs, was more than offset by increases in all other convergent markets, mostly due to broadband and TV RGUs.

Overall, TV RGUs were up 5 thousand units (0.3%) in the quarter and up 211 thousand units (14.7%) versus the same point in 2018.
