The downturn in revenues is primarily attributable to interconnection revenues and revenues from the sale of equipment, as well as monthly fee and traffic revenues. Despite increased usage in the transit business, interconnection revenues declined by 26.4% to EUR 191.8 mn as a result of lower termination rates. All in all, regulatory effects negatively impacted revenues by EUR 77.0 mn. In addition, lower gross additions as a result of reduced subsidies meant that revenues from the sale of equipment declined by 33.6% to EUR 112.9 mn. Monthly fee and traffic revenues fell by 3.6% to EUR 1,777.2 mn; adjusted for the aforementioned extraordinary effects, however, the reduction fell to 1.4%. Increased monthly fixed fees could not offset lower customer roaming and airtime revenues. Declining voice minutes continued to negatively impact fixed-line revenues, but were partly compensated by gains in TV and broadband.

Average monthly revenues per mobile user (ARPU) rose from EUR 16.1 in 2013 to EUR 16.2 in the year under review, with the positive effects from increased fixed fees and the higher proportion of premium customers offsetting the negative impact of regulation and lower variable mobile revenues. Given the further decline in the fixed-line voice business, which was only partially mitigated by higher revenues from broadband and A1 TV, average monthly revenue per fixed access line (ARPL) fell to EUR 30.4 in 2014 (2013: EUR 31.3).
