At HWL business Three UK, operating profit increased 231% year-on-year to £86 million in the first half of 2013. Active customers increased to over 7.5 million, which was a 10% increase year-on-year. Registered customer numbers reached 9.2 million.

Richard Woodward, Chief Financial Officer at Three UK, said “We’ve seen another quarter of sustained and profitable growth, driven by new, high-value smartphone customers and a continued focus on cost efficiency. We’re attracting more and more customers, but importantly these are very engaged customers, delivering growth to the bottom line.”
