Nice reported link on iii BTW.
"We are now 80% complete on the mobile side; 4G coverage is 80% in Europe.
India coverage on 3G is now up at 94%.
Top left, we’ve added 5 million mobile contract customers to move above 90 million. Top right, we’ve added over 1 million NGN fixed customers to hit 5.6 million.

Vodafone still dancing alone.....we have beautiful assets......if others agree... That paragraph response about it takes two......appears to be pretty much what has been the story. Pay up for the lady or get lost. You're not going to steal this one while it rolls out premium infrastructure that will propel strong growth.
I just don't see how the banana gets out of the jar unless Liberty gets a hammer and breaks the jar....selling the other fruits of Vodafone like once rumored AT&T was going to do..... Keep EU, India goes to China Mobile, Africa goes to Orange...etc. Liberty doesn't appear to have the horsepower to take the whole jar. I do see a bidding war erupting at the drop of the first glove however. 5G and the IoT with Vodafone having good positions on four continents. Vodafone should be trading in the $40 print.
Modest upside affect on share price just like Yahoo with the Alibaba IPO. 10-20% potential. IPO just makes it easier to put a value on VOD's high growth in that given market. I do wonder if the IPO might have some pro impacts on a possible Liberty bid as I believe it would make it easier to get Malone's proverbial 'banana out of the jar'.
Interesting you have a loan from a 401k in retirement when the vast majority of plans don't allow for loans once in retirement. Maybe a withdraw you are branding a "loan" or you really aren't retired.
Borrowing from a 401k to pay off credit cards is typically considered a fool's game by most financial planners because most who have accumulated credit card debt (living beyond their means on a month-to-month) will pile up new credit card debt after taking a loan out to pay off existing debt. You might want to stop posting your finance 101 failures. Guess I shouldn't expect any different from someone sitting in AT&T who has long underperformed the S&P 500 return and bought an AOL rerun in DTV.
Those simple rules are well below Buffett levels of Finance. Buffett is graduate levels of finance and you aren't following a 101 level course. Guess that's why your sitting in a red herring AT&T yield that has long underperformed the S&P.
Yet another klown ID that attacks the messenger instead of the message. Priceless.
You have credit card balances you are most likely paying double digits on while getting a lesser total return from holding AT&T. Not so sharp... Borrowing money from 401k? Wow You should stop posting as you don't look so smart before even talking up the red herring AT&T yield.
There isn't enough room for any more dogs as you've already taken in the AT&T dog. Dog is going to need a lot of medicine or just put to sleep with lead to the head when DTV's market barrier collapses.
Supreme Court asks Vodafone to deposit Rs 2,000 crore for merging its 6 units
Vodafone India tax fight might be getting put to bed soon AND the IPO for India appears to be rapidly approaching.
ROFL. More circus acts as the messenger is attacked by his post and not the message. Fact is AT&T dumped company stock into the underfunded pension plan that puts it nearly 2X the acceptable benchmark by ERISA. FACT that your peapaw ID won't acknowledge and instead goes on a tirade about the author's history. A history that has nothing to do with the FACT that AT&T has filled its pension with unsafe levels of company stock.
Do you not know realize how many billion was wasted in the failed TMUS bid? ....and those figures were on the value of spectrum then. I wonder how much that spectrum is worth today/what it cost T to replace the spectrum that was handed to TMUS. The cost of the failed bid to take over TMUS is more as spectrum values have increased.
AT&T doing well vs. surviving the balance sheet and cash flow disaster as DTV loses its pricing power/market barrier. I'll keep repeating the same tired phrases as much as the klowns keep trumpeting that red herring dividend yield.
Responding to yourself. Priceless klown act. Keep up the circus. The curtain will soon be pulled as new technology is rolled out over the next couple years. RS will exit stage left as shareholders get angry over the DTV debacle. DTV will make the billions wasted in the failed TMUS debacle look like pocket change.
I see you once again trolling the internet on the weekend with no life. Single, lonely klown has nothing else to do with his life.....
The public likes faster internet and Netflix has great sub numbers. Them moving to an even faster internet that provides buffer free streaming videos in 4K isn't really a question of adoption of a new technology. It is something people want. The old guard cable and Telco cartel is getting a day of reckoning as the competition that wants to roll out faster networks gained the ultimate card in the ISP classification of common utility under Title II move by FCC. If the cartel doesn't move on such then the competition finally has an easier time building new infrastructure. The cartel said for years consumers didn't want or need faster internet in their foot dragging defense of pay TV. Nice new ID on SA BTW.
Enough to attract both AT&T and Liberty's attention....you gotta pay to play! Don't want to pay? Go get the latin street walkers and deal with the STDs.
Ask AOL how their business faired got hammered when the Telco and cable companies rolled up better bandwidth than dial up.
My personal opinion is rural America needs service too but it doesn't happen overnight either....like electricity to rural America when 90% of urban dwellers had electricity for a good 40 years prior. Companies chase the higher profit centers. Rural isn't the largest profit as demonstrated by AOL's dial up business.
After being denied by the hottest gal in town it appears the rebound is a latino tranny. Best of luck dealing with the nasty diseases.
So which klown ID will you be posting with during the next three weeks while you send that ID on vacation? Worm, Lap Dog?
Good for you with RDS. You could take a look at HSBC and BP for additional higher than AT&T yielding stocks. At least with that trio there is upside fundamental unlike that buggy whip AT&T bought in DTV!
