Rogers Communications consolidated revenue up 3%

Rogers Communications Inc. (NYSE: RCI) said its fourth quarter ending December 31, 2015, showed consolidated revenue increased three percent, reflecting revenue growth of four percent in Wireless and three percent in Media and decreases of two percent in each of Cable and Business Solutions, the company said.

Wireless revenue increased as a result of higher network revenue from the continued adoption of higher-postpaid-ARPA-generating Rogers Share Everything plans and increased device revenue.

Cable revenue decreased due to the continued decline in Television and Phone revenue, partially offset by continued Internet revenue growth.

Media revenue increased primarily as a result of growth at Sportsnet and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Rogers Communications is a diversified public Canadian communications and media company.
