“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.
