Vodafone Sees Slight Growth

Vodafone said its group organic service revenue increased 0.7% year-on-year in the three months to September 30, driven by "market share gains in Europe Consumer Fixed, continued growth in Vodafone Business, and strong mobile data demand and customer base growth in Emerging Consumer, partly offset by declines in Europe Consumer Mobile."

Vodafone said it is now Europe’s largest owner of "gigabit-capable next generation network (NGN) infrastructure" following the closure of the Liberty Global acquisition, which added 17 million cable homes in Germany and central and eastern Europe to its footprint, increasing the number of homes connected by its NGN network in Europe to 54 million.

Vodafone is upgrading its cable infrastructure using DOCSIS 3.1 technology, and aims to market gigabit broadband speeds to around 50 million households in its cable and FTTH (fibre) footprint by March 2023, compared to 24 million today. It has also launched 5G in seven European markets, with services available in 58 cities with "observed speeds of up to 1Gbps." source: Vodafone statement
