2.5 Million Customers For Vodafone Pacific

Vodafone Pacific recently reached the milestone of 2.5 million customers in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

Overall, the group’s customer base has grown more than 56 per cent in the last 12 months. That is equivalent to more than 75,000 new customers per month during that period.

In New Zealand, Vodafone continues to grow market share, now more than 38 per cent after connecting approximately 60 per cent of all new customers in that market in the September 2000 quarter.

Vodafone New Zealand has led the battle for new connections for the last four quarters with 51.7 per cent in December 1999, 54.4 per cent in March 2000 and 60.4 per cent for the June 2000 quarter.

The New Zealand business also recorded a revenue increase of 47 per cent for the quarter ending September 2000, compared to the same period in 1999.

In Australia, Vodafone recorded its 16th successive quarter of market share growth in September 2000.

The CEO of Vodafone Pacific, Dr Brian Clark, said Vodafone was well on track to continue its phenomenal growth in this region.

"Vodafone Pacific's regional presence has enabled the delivery of high quality, innovative services and pricing plans to our customers. We believe their response is reflected in the highest customer growth rates in the region. We are confident that this strong growth will continue," said Dr Clark.
