Vodacom Results for Financial Year 2018/19
This IDC Market Note examines the key developments revealed by Vodacom Group's results for financial year 2018/19, as released on Monday, May 14, 2019. It also presents IDC's point of view on the results, assesses their meaning, and examines Vodacom Group's expected future performance.
"Vodacom is doing well with its international operations, given the considerable infrastructure investments it has made in increasing its site numbers and the returns it has achieved from partnerships such as the one with Safaricom. However, the challenge facing Vodacom is the need to reduce its data prices in the South African market, and spectrum allocation will be crucial in terms of adequately meeting this need." — Senior Research and Consulting Manager Sabelo Dlamini, IDC South Africa
