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.
