For the group, overall, the regulatory impact represented 1.7 percentage points of lower growth in the quarter. Of course, this has also partially reduces our costs. During the quarter, we saw further voice MTR cuts in Spain, the U.K., South Africa and New Zealand. The growth in data and fixed revenues continues, although messaging has now moved into negative growth territory along with voice revenues. CapEx for the quarter was GBP 1.1 billion, and free cash flow, as I mentioned earlier, was GBP 0.9 billion. I'll cover these in more detail later.On Slide 5, let's take a closer look at the service revenues from our individual operating companies, and I will select a few countries to discuss in more detail. Ghana continues to leave the group with the highest growth. Whilst this is a small country in the overall context of the group, we are very proud of the performance in Ghana. Turkey continues to demonstrate operational excellence with strong growth across all segments. We have seen strong competition in all consumer segments in the market, but we have delivered particularly well in mobile Internet, which has driven date revenue growth of 69%. Turkey now has 18% smartphone penetration, up 9 percentage points from a year ago.
