EE has revealed that it has reached the 14 million 4G customer milestone as it unveiled its last financials ahead of becoming part of BT.
The UK company maintained its position as the largest 4G operator in Europe, as LTE subscribers almost doubled during the course of the year.
However, a 1.8 percent year-on-year rise in total connections was thanks to growth in M2M, fixed broadband and MVNO customers.
An increase in the number of post-pay customers was not enough to offset a fall in pre-pay subscribers, while ARPU declined slightly.
As a result, revenue growth continued to prove elusive although the 0.3 percent decline to £6.3 billion showed continued improvement.
Adjusted earnings rose over 12 percent to £1.8 billion.
Marc Allera, EE Chief Exec, commented: “2015 was an exceptional year for EE, as we met and exceeded 4G targets, won multiple awards for our network performance, and improved our customer satisfaction scores.”
EE will now concentrate on integrating itself into BT after the takeover was approved in January.
Earlier this month, BT unveiled its new structure that sees EE focus on the consumer market.
Allera said: “As part of BT, we’re entering the next chapter of EE’s journey, and look forward to a phenomenal opportunity to innovate for the benefit of our customers, while continuing to build and enhance the UK’s digital infrastructure.”
