Data Now Makes Up 39% of Rogers Total Revenue

Rogers reported a second-quarter adjusted operating profit of $1.27 billion on revenues of $3.1 billion this quarter, both up from the same quarter last year.

The Toronto telecommunications giant added 87,000 net subscribers during the quarter, which drove a 13% increase in data revenue. And with cable TV revenues dipping and home phone revenues flat, data now makes up 39% of the company’s total revenue—up from 35% last year. 

“Our revenue and adjusted operating profit growth in the second quarter was highlighted by strong postpaid wireless smartphone sales and customer retention metrics, as well as exceptionally strong margins in both our wireless and cable businesses,” said Nadir Mohamed, president and chief executive of Rogers, in a statement.
