May 7, 2020

From David Del Valle in Madrid

The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a toll on Telefónica’s results. In the first quarter of the year, the company saw its profit fall by 56.2 per cent to €406 million, mainly due to the sharp fall in revenues in Latin America, above all in Brazil.

Total revenues fell by 5.1 per cent to €11.3 billion.

In Spain, its revenues declined by 1.6 per cent to €3 billion. Its pay TV service Movistar lost 41,500 customers in the first quarter versus the previous quarter to 4,032,300, albeit a 2 per cent rise year-on-year.

ARPU in convergent packages stood at €91.8, down 1.1 per cent year-on-year.
