Vodacom breaks through 100m subscriber mark

JSE-listed telecommunications giant Vodacom achieved double-digit growth in net profit for the financial year ended March 31, boosted by its acquisition of Safaricom, as well as the profit from the sale of Helios Towers Tanzania. This comes as Vodacom surpasses the 103-million customer mark after adding more than 8.4-million subscribers onto the Vodacom and Safaricom networks during the year under review.
