Vodafone news

Vodafone recorded 85,000 UK home broadband customers in the UK during the second quarter of 2013, it has been reported.

The broadband provider - which ditched its own-brand fixed-line broadband service two years ago - completed its acquisition of Cable & Wireless Worldwide (CWW) in April.

And as reported by, CWW provides ADSL2+ broadband services to a number of UK service providers, including Tesco. The company also offers fibre-optic lines to business customers.

The CWW customer total for Q2 2013 is down by 2,000 on the 87,000 recorded at the end of the first quarter.

But according to, this subscriber base is still enough to make Vodafone one of the ten largest broadband providers - by volume of customers - in the UK.

Vodafone's main focus in the UK remains on mobile services, including mobile broadband. As one of the winning bidders in Ofcom's recent 4G auction, the firm is set to launch super-fast mobile broadband deals later this year.

"Vodafone 4G will give you faster internet on your device," the broadband provider says. "Streaming, browsing, online gaming and HD video calling will all be quicker than ever before."
