Today aren't defeated yet they said we ever had Kordell blood come more to bring portal. Then when the gun. Roughly 55% of the of your units they generated by our brand website and 45%. On the quarter in terms of revenue court judges. A little more 50%. You don't have needed. This is today is not a projection. More than 30% of our audience he's already more about the standard for mobile debated on the bottom of the audience. Unfortunately believe that the situation for poor kids did very different between audience and revenue. Two big revenue that generated by more balanced 12%. Which is very significant. Because we're talking about two billion York on the over on the digital assets. Four we're talking about more than 200 million you'll on mobile U dated. A few figures year leader we generate one new mobile user on our assets every second. The jet though revenue generated on mobile this year are untrue wine. Increased by 60% so resilient leases revenue and we W reach more than 3.3 million downloads. On all apps. Still I think that we're doubling our good better we are suffering from the past twelve.

And if we have earned the opportunity to be one of the top 41 of the fourth quite. We know that we want to make it a large scale with 29 solutions should provide. So this is why we need to make sure that we explained to the customer why. Everything easing to only one up. And why you would download it why you would use it more and more. And the main focus would be that this did not going to be all need of course it'd mean for August to Jerry thinks. But that it's more about our then will com by the guest. From the beginning to the end and including one major issue which is what we are here today welcome if you just used during the state. So are with the U verse services.

End the only thing that the user actually do it will fall while the only after a finishing up from the from the bar back. To me let people would have come in everything would be agreed keeping save get caught up so that's a green light on our on that we're very tonight Ford or on a more. N then what we are waiting for the next couple of months as well is. An experience that get voted on this stuff which you which is the last one that we have a large on this dot first. You what we call the trip planner the trip planner is everything that you need to what I hear what am I going to do. The distillation. Very severe doubt very very few were killed in the world we're you brought to an appeal because of the viewer tell very very issue. The vast majority of them work we're very tough call whether it's we're in your luck and Paducah. Is you brought to a double could you want to go to lifted its fusion for any reason when they do business with periods friends with his family with great pleasure. Saw you struggling to adopt for an deliver location we need to give more content and more sub issues of what to do around your tail.

Restaurants a museums for example. Surely that all his brand that would be closed. At the end of due this year. They're people that have already done lauded he's that would be able to use it. Until October 10 of what would come by all these guest can be traded down lord. Yet Kordell that will merge and the October taught only one apple chief yet court of the gone.

Why do we call it took a smart home page he is because we deliver services bays that on them and on the moment of usage of yeah.
