“My new strategic priorities focus on (…) radically simplifying our operating model and generating better returns from our infrastructure assets,” said Read.
In its first quarter report, Vodafone reported a group service revenue of 19.7 billion euros and an adjusted earnings of 7.08 billion euros, up by 2.9%.
