Results for the March 2011 quarter were impressive with net revenue up 27% to $950 million from the year-ago quarter, fuelled by its mobile and broadband businesses. During the March quarter, new mobile subscriptions grew 13% in Argentina with a 16% increase in mobile ARPU (average revenue per user), compared to the same period in 2010.
