Vodafone UK: some signs of life but an uncertain road to recovery
Vodafone’s newfound focus on performance improvement is showing signs of delivering – more on the cost than revenue side. Tower sharing has the potential to ultimately enhance European cashflow by 10%
The revenue picture is more mixed with churn improving but a very varied operational picture across its major European markets
Although Vodafone highlights the potential for German cable to drive growth post Liberty Global deal completion, their current 0.4% growth in Germany does not give cause for optimism

Tower sharing can enhance shareholder returns

Slight improvement in mobile, fixed hardly growing

Italy and UK bounce, Germany and Spain concerning

Signs of some progress on churn; convergence not helping

UK – mobile surprisingly better, fixed flat-lining

Germany – still lackluster: mobile in decline, fixed still slow

Italy – better but still a touch disappointing

Spain – operational metrics still very concerning
