Meteor's sales fall

Mobile phone provider Meteor has blamed a fall in earnings on "intense competition" and the economic downturn.

The Eircom-owned company saw its earnings drop by 19pc to €102m last year.

The group's revenues dropped by 6pc from €491.2m to €458.1m in the 12 months to the end of June last year, according to its latest figures.
