Television services increased slightly to 1.643 million, while mobile communications services grew by 4.8% and totaled 5.209 million. In the cinema too, we are aware of the recovery, especially in the third quarter, when many of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic were lifted. Between January and September, Nos sold 1.819 million movie tickets, 70% of which were in the third quarter alone.

Altogether, Arqam’s revenue totaled €1,044 million between January and September 2021, an increase of 3.1% over last year. EBITDA increased 1.4% in the period to a total of €477.7 million.
