Vodafone said connection figures for the third quarter showed continued strong growth in the demand for mobile phones. Gross connections for July, August and September were over 279,000, which resulted in net connections of more than 148,000. The level of "network churn" continued to improve, down from 28.5 to 25 per cent. "This result for the traditionally slower summer quarter was significantly ahead of last year's record equivalent period and well up to our expectations," Sir Gerald Whent, chief executive, said.
Mobile demand strong, says Vodafone
