The Australian division released its first half of 2018 results, announcing it had received 294,000 new mobile subscriptions in the six months to June.

The company’s revenue rose by 7.1% in the review period to reach $7.1bn, and its earnings before interest and taxes hit $509.7mn, a year-on-year increase of 6.8%.

“I’m very proud of our track record of reliability, stability and a fantastic customer experience,” stated Iñaki Berroeta, the Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA).


“We have the highest NPS among the MNOs, our mobile network is world-class, Vodafone nbnTM has launched successfully, and our business continues to grow in a highly competitive market.

“Over the next six months, we’ll continue to evolve our mobile network, including 5G preparations; grow our Vodafone nbn business; and drive further value and product simplification for customers.”

“In a competitive market, VHA has added 294,000 mobile customers year on year, with growth driven by Postpaid and Prepaid segments, including non-Vodafone branded customers,” remarked Sean Crowley, Vodafone’s Acting Chief Financial Officer.
