    Vodafone reports Live! data growth


    Vodafone results for the year ending 31 March 2003 showed increased turnover, albeit including figures from Japanese operations.

    Losses slowed and 11% customer growth was reported, including the addition of over a million subscribers to the Vodafone Live! service. The revenues from data services also rose to UKP3,622million, as did mobile business propor-tionate EBITDA margins.
    Eight new partner network agreements, the launch of Mobile Office (secure, remote laptop connection using GPRS data cards and software) and new services like GPRS roaming elicited a confident assessment of operating performance from coo, Julian Horn-Smith.
    “We have laid the foundation for profitable growth and success in the years ahead,” he predicted, as outgoing chief executive Sir Christopher Gent handed over control.
