Rogers Communications announced today its results for the third quarter of 2012. The company saw revenue growth reach $3,176 million led by strong wireless growth.

"Our top line and operating profit growth in the third quarter was highlighted by strong postpaid wireless smartphone sales and accelerated wireless data revenue growth, as well as strong margins in both our wireless and cable businesses where customer retention and cost containment initiatives have taken hold," said Nadir Mohamed, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rogers Communications Inc. "Despite intensely competitive markets, we continued to successfully leverage our technology leadership to deliver new and innovative products and services and to invest in our networks at a healthy pace, while at the same time continuing to generate strong earnings and free cash flow."

Rogers Communications reported its wireless network revenue grew 2 per cent led by wireless smartphone activation, a total of 707,000, which increased by 36 per cent and a wireless data revenue increase by 18 per cent.
