Vodafone reported a 0.1% year-on-year organic rise in service revenues in the quarter ending March 31. In Europe organic service revenue fell more than 2%, offset by a 6% rise in AMAP (Asia, Middle East, Africa and Pacific) organic service revenue "led by strong customer growth and rising data penetration." For the year to March 31, group revenue declined almost 1% on an organic basis to 42.2 billion British pounds (62.6 billion US dollars).
Vittorio Colao, Group CEO, commented: “It has been a year of continued progress, culminating with a return to organic growth in Q4. We have seen increasing signs of stabilisation in many of our European markets, supported by improvements in our commercial execution and very strong demand for data." Source: Vodafone statement

Madrid-based telco Telefónica reported organic revenue growth of more than 3% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2015 to 11.54 billion euros, on the back of improved performance in Spain, Brazil and Germany
César Alierta, Executive Chairman, said: "These figures reflect the solid beginning of this new cycle and are leveraged on the improved organic evolution of the business. This growth is also reflected across the board as all business units, except for Spain, posted increases in accesses, revenues and OIBDA. Moreover, Spain has already begun its return to growth after reporting in the quarter a year-on-year increase in accesses, which will gradually translate into growth in financials." source: Telefónica statement
