BANGKOK — Reporting its performance for the three months to June 30, 2009, True Corporation PLC (SET: True) saw both Group service revenue and EBITDA grow on a Y-on-Y basis despite the challenging economic climate.

Despite the low season period and impact from the economy, TrueVisions’ subscriber base grew 37% Y-on-Y to 1.6 million mainly on continuing mass marketing success. Service revenue declined 3% Y-on-Y to Baht 2.3 billion mainly due to the rescheduling of Academy Fantasia to Q3 whereas subscription revenues grew 3.2%.
