Overall service revenue and market share
While Digi led in the subscriber market share category, Maxis still had the biggest chunk of overall service revenue market share – by far!
Note that service revenue does not include revenue from the sale of mobile devices.
A look at the Big Three’s combined service revenue showed that there was a 4.4% decline to RM5.21 billion, with Maxis registering a very marginal decline (Q1 2015: RM2.127 billion, Q1 2016: RM2.126 billion), while Digi and Celcom registered 1.89% and 12.14% declines, respectively.
[RM1 = US$0.24]
Q1 2016 was also the first time Digi became the No 2 player in terms of overall service revenue.
In terms of ARPU (Average Revenue Per User), Maxis was the only mobile operator which ended the first quarter with a higher blended ARPU of RM50 (Q1 2015: RM48).
Digi had a blended ARPU of RM42 (Q1 2015: RM46) and Celcom had RM39 (Q1 2015: RM44).
