Vodacom claim a million went missing in Vodafone’s subscriber count

26 Jul 2005

South Africa’s biggest mobile operator Vodacom says its subscriber base reached 17.2 million at the end of June 2005, contradicting the growth reported yesterday by its UK parent Vodafone. On Monday Vodafone, which owns 35% of Vodacom, had claimed that the South African cellco ended the first half of the year with 16.2 million users. Vodacom says it will now issue an official statement later this week.
