Vodafone - additional information
As can be seen in the statistic above, British multinational company Vodafone has millions of customers spread out all around the world. Vodafone has operations in more than 30 different countries and also has partner operations in many additional places. The company enjoys a significant share of the telecommunications markets in a number of the different countries where it operates. In particular, the company has a very high share of the market in South Africa, where Vodafone owns 50 percent of the leading company, Vodacom.
As one might expect, seeing how many millions of customers the company has, Vodafone also generates high levels of revenue each year. Since 2009, the company has consistently generated more than 40 billion pounds annually (over 60 billion U.S. dollars). As a result Vodafone was ranked fifth in the list of the most valuable telecommunications brands in the world in 2016. Ahead of Vodafone were AT&T, China Mobile, Verizon, and Deutsche Telekom. In the United Kingdom, Vodafone is the leading corporate brand.
Vodafone also has a significant number of employees dispersed all around the world. In 2016, the company had in total more than 111,600 employees, working in the areas of customer care and administration, selling and distribution and operations.
