Vodafone Voice and Messaging Decline Accelerates

Vodafone said its service revenue declined 2.6% year-on-year on an organic basis in the quarter ending December 31 to 10.4 billion British pounds (16.34 billion US dollars), dragged down by a 11.9% decline in southern Europe. Group voice revenue was down 6.8% year-on-year (compared with 5.8% in the previous quarter) and messaging revenue fell 7.9% (5.3%), partially offset by a 12.8% (13.7%) rise in data revenue.

Vodafone said that about one third of its European customer base now has a smartphone and data traffic on its networks in the quarter ending December 31 was up 55% year-on-year. It plans to continue its "rapid deployment of HSPA+/LTE" networks. source: Vodafone presentation

Hi, I'd like to share on Vodafone. Been a three customer for many years way back in the days of CDMA, since the changeover to Vodafone towers coverage anywhere outside metropolitan Melbourne is very poor; roaming onto the Telstra network is now almost non existent despite them saying this would not change. If you talk to four different customer service people you will get four different answers. All in all an absolute disgrace, they should be shut down and all customers release3d from contracts. thanks all~ Natasha
