4.14 Cash flows

In 2016, BCE’s cash flows from operating activities increased by $369 million, compared to 2015, due mainly to higher adjusted EBITDA, lower acquisition and other costs paid and lower income taxes paid, partly offset by a higher voluntary DB pension plan contribution made in 2016.

Free cash flow increased by $227 million in 2016, compared to 2015, due to higher cash flows from operating activities, partly offset by higher capital expenditures.
