Telecom NZ's adjusted net falls 24% in Q2

Telecom New Zealand (ASX:TEL) has reported it earned NZ$80 million ($62.7 million) in Q2, a result that when adjusted for write-downs translates to a 23.8% year-on-year decrease.

Its new XT mobile network continued its steady growth, and had 467,000 subscribers by the end of the year. Of these, 57% are postpaid. Roaming revenues soared 111% year-on-year, and average data revenue per user grew 19%.
