SINGTEL'S latest profit report has been dragged down by weaker currencies in markets where it has operations, including Australia, Indonesia and India.

But the telco still recorded a 4 per cent rise in fourth-quarter earnings to $898 million.

That would have been a 13 per cent jump had currencies been constant, SingTel said yesterday.

As expected, revenue for the quarter ended March 31 fell 8 per cent to $4.12 billion.
