BCE Inc. today reported results for the second quarter of 2008.

“This was a quarter of strong progress against our strategic imperatives, especially the significant acceleration of our wireless business,” said George Cope, president and CEO of BCE and Bell Canada.

“Wireless saw improvements in financial and operating metrics in the quarter, including the highest level of postpaid net activations since the fourth quarter of 2005, significant growth in total net activations, improvements in churn, COA and postpaid ARPU, and double-digit growth in operating revenue and EBITDA.”

The Bell Wireless segment achieved 111,000 postpaid net activations compared to 43,000 in Q2 2007. Total net activations this quarter grew to 83,000, or by 31.7%.
