EMEA associates

Associates in EMEA increased their average customer bases by 20% in the year, with particularly strong growth in markets with relatively low penetration rates such as those in Eastern Europe and Africa. This customer growth generated an increase in operating profit of 6%.

SFR, the Group’s associated undertaking in France, reported strong growth in revenue and operating profit before goodwill amortisation, principally as a result of a 9% increase in average customers compared to the prior year. Usage of both voice and non-voice services grew in the period and SFR had a total of 2.6 million Vodafone live! customers at 31 March 2005. SFR launched the Vodafone Mobile Connect 3G/GPRS data card in May 2004 and Vodafone live! with 3G in November 2004 and it also markets BlackBerry from Vodafone products.

Vodacom continued to grow both in South Africa and internationally through its interests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Mozambique and Tanzania. Venture customers at 31 March 2005 totalled 15,482,000, an increase of 5,757,000 over the previous year, including 2,645,000 customers in Vodacom’s international interests which were previously excluded from the Group’s reported customer base. In April 2005, Vodacom launched Vodafone live! with 3G in South Africa building on the successful launch of the Vodafone Mobile Connect 3G/GPRS data card in December 2004.
