The Start Of A Roaming Revenue Rebound For Vodafone

William Ryder, Equity Analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown:

“Vodafone’s first quarter marks what we hope is the start of a roaming revenue rebound. Roaming revenue, which is paid when people use their phones abroad, still has some way to go before it’s back to pre-pandemic levels, but a 56% rise helped the group return to service revenue growth this quarter. However, the real challenge is stringing several quarters, and then years, together.

Vodafone has a few genuinely exciting segments, such as M-Pesa which offers mobiles financial services in Africa, and some stalwart markets in Europe like Germany. But there are also several markets in which the group has struggled to differentiate itself and so battles against relentless price competition. The potential is there for long term growth and shareholder value creation, but we’ll want a little more evidence before getting too upbeat.”
