The service revenues of Vodafone Romania for the full year 2017-2018 reached EUR 723.6 million, up by 2.5 percent, compared to last year, on an organic basis, according to the key performance indicators for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 2018, as reported today by Vodafone Group Plc.
The telecom operator had 9.6 million total customers at March 31st, 2018, representing an increase of 2.1 percent as compared to last year. Out of the total number of customers, 8.9 million were mobile customers.
“During the last financial year we worked on our key priorities – big data, expanding into home and digitalization. Our users benefited from enriched propositions, improved customer experience across all touchpoints and continuous investment into our network, which led to speed and quality supremacy. Introducing our users to Supernet 4.5G represented a milestone for the entire market and we have seen the number of 4.5G compatible devices increasing monthly since its launch,” Murielle Lorilloux, CEO Vodafone Romania, stated.
At end-March, mobile postpaid customers represented 41 percent, and prepaid customers 59 percent of the total mobile base. Mobile postpaid base as a percentage of total mobile base increased by 0.3 percentage points as compared to last year.
Data usage increased more than 80 percent for the year ended March 31st, 2018, compared to last year.
Vodafone Romania’s mobile ARPU was EUR 6.0 over the fiscal year under review, compared to EUR 6.1 in the previous year.
Last week, Vodafone announced its intention to acquire UPC Romania, subject to regulatory approval. According to Lorilloux, this move will accelerate Vodafone Romania strategy to transform itself into a fully converged communications company.
