Vodafone New Zealand has passed the two million customer mark in the December 2005 quarter, what the company says is a significant milestone for its mobile customers. The company claims it is now commanding a 54% participation in the New Zealand mobile market.
Vodafone�s results for the quarter to 31 December 2005 show that the company is continuing to grow customer numbers and build usage for services, even on a though market where the company goes head to head with Telecom New Zealand in the mobile field.
Director of Business Markets Phil Patel said the results are a reflection of the company�s focus on constantly introducing customers to the best of mobile. The company has been operating for seven years in New Zealand, and invested NZ$2 billion in its operations.
Vodafone's network has been busier than before, with a 10% rise in voice minutes over the last quarter, to a total of 616 million minutes.
While Prepay users are 80% of the customers, they generate an ARPU of NZ$25.9, with the other 20% on account users generate an ARPU of NZ$137.20.
The company reported 68,000 new customers in a 3 three-month roling basis.
Vodafone�s net customer additions for the quarter excludes telemetry, machine to machine connections, other data devices and customer adjustments.
