“During the quarter, our non-voice revenues grew by 11.5% thereby contributing 47% of the total revenues, the highest in the industry, said MTS India CEO Dmitry Shukov. “One of the key reasons for improvement in our data revenues was due to expansion of our HSD services across all our 9 circles,” he added.
