AUSTRALIA: ICT service revenues increased on a sequential basis to $59.8 billion in 3Q09, after declining for the previous six quarters in a row.
“Revenues were still down almost 5 percent year-over-year, but that is a lot less than in the first and second quarters,” said Ovum Vice President John Lively, “The trend shows clear improvement and suggests the worst of the recession impact is over.”
